What version of operating system do you have.
there is usually a red circle with an x at the bottom right of your screen... it's called the systray by the way.
click on that ... when the next window opens up scroll to the bottom of that page. you will see windows firewall... click on that and change the setting of the firewall to whatever you prefer

How to turn off firewall in windows 7 and let norton firewall work


  1. Open Windows Firewall by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Security, and then clicking Windows Firewall.

  2. Click Turn Windows Firewall on or off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  3. Click Off (not recommended), and then click OK



    Make certain that your Norton Firewall is on before you turn off windows firewall (or shortly after) Turning off Windows Firewall might make your computer (and your network, if you have one) more vulnerable to damage from worms or hackers.



    Hope this helps!

I keep getting alerts from Mcafee saying my computer is at risk because my firewall is off. I've tried repeatedly to turn it back on, but after a few seconds, it shuts off again.


Goto start then run, type services.msc, scroll through the list for Windows Firewall and ensure the service is "started" and set to Automatic, you can change it by double clicking on it.

My software for singer futura machine does not install on either computer how can I fix the problem


The problem could be the operating software (Windows XP, Vista, 7), but it sounds most likely like a firewall problem. If you have a firewall program installed like the one that automatically comes on Windows 7, it doesn't allow much to be installed unless you tell it to allow it. Also, Windows 7 needs a patch to allow the Futura software to install and run (available at www.Futura-support.com). Download the patch. When you go to run it, be sure you're off the internet (right click on Windows Explorer icon that appears in the lower left corner of your screen and choose Close Window). Now left click on the Start icon in the lower left corner. Choose "Systems and Security" in the right column, then "Windows Firewall". On the lefthand side will be the second choice of "Turn Windows Firewall On or Off." You're only going to turn the Firewall off long enough to install the Patch and, YES IT IS SAFE! Once you've installed the patch, go immediately back in and turn your firewall back on.

If you use another firewall program (i.e., Norton, McAfee, Computer Associates), you'll have to refer to their Help on how to allow this to install, though their programs will probably ask if you want to install this software rather than just block it. Unless you set Windows 7 firewall to ask you, it just blocks everything.

I hope this is your problem.

I CANNOT get the CE100 software to download correctly. The patch on the support website DID NOT work either. Can anyone help me?!


It's possible you have a problem with the Windows 7 Firewall. Hopefully, that's the one you're using. It blocks nearly everything. First, remove EVERYTHING for the patches and Futura program-not your designs, though. Be sure you do this through the Control Panel from your Start menu in the lower lefthand corner of your screen (I'm not assuming you don't know anything about PC's, just not assuming that you do, okay?). Now make sure you exit any internet browsers (Windows IE, Mozilla, etc) by right clicking on their icon in the lower lefthand of the screen and choosing Close Window. Go back to Control Panel, choose System and Security, then Windows Firewall. On the right hand side of the screen, the second choice is Turn Windows Firewall On or Off. ONLY turn the firewall off to install Futura and the patch and YES IT"S SAFE. Now turn the firewall back on RIGHT NOW.

This will hopefully take care of your issue. Please leave me a comment back and let me know if it doesn't. I'll see if I can hit any of my PC guru resources for any further help if it doesn't.

I can't turn my firewall back on?


Assuming you mean Windows Firewall, and not a 3rd party firewall like AVG, click Start --> Control Panel --> Windows Firewall. Let me know if that's what you mean or not and I'm happy to assist further.
If that does the trick, please give a rating!

Every day when i turn my computer on, my firewall is turned off, so i turn it back on and make sure it is turned on when i turn the computer back off. today i can't get it to turn on.


if you have an internet security programme, sometimes it will turn off windows firewall and use it's own instead, but you should still be able to turn it back on manually through control panel>windows firewall
