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 Check Windows 7 Firewall Settings

1. Click on the start button, and then click on Control Panel

2. Once in Control Panel click on Windows Firewall. Here you will see the main firewall settings.

Note with the newer versions of Windows, this includes Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 you now leave the service running. If you want to turn off the firewall you just click on the "Turn Windows Firewall on or off" option.

In addition if something networking related is not working properly it may me a good idea to turn off the Windows Firewall for testing to see if the Windows Firewall is actually causing your problem.

3. If you are planning to leave the Windows Firewall running it is a good idea to check your "Advanced settings"

Once in here you will be able to check your incoming and outgoing rules, as well as your connection rules.

Note if you still have trouble after setting the "Advance settings" there could be another firewall on a computer or on the network in general blocking the communication. If you are communicating from computer to computer in most cases your need to make sure the same firewall changes are on both computers.

I need help a fire wall setting to connection to paltalk


To open Windows Firewall, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Windows Firewall. If you use the Advanced tab to turn off Windows Firewall for one or more individual connections, the Windows Security Center will report that the firewall is off, even though the firewall is still turned on for other connections. Also, on the General tab, Windows Firewall will still be set to On.

Hoped this helped change your settings :)

How do i turn off my firewall so i can run my wifi


Which firewall, please be more specific... The windows one or is it some other Antivirus/Firewall program you are using. A name and a version are the things i need to help you. But usually Antivirus programs have their own Turn off Firewall button when you right-click on their Icon. And you can turn the Windows firewall off from the Control Panel.

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
