Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
On my compaq laptop via a wireless network I keep getting a message saying that the firewall is turned off but when I go and look at the security centre it is switched on. Why is this happening?
Have you tried Security center/Change the way windows notifies you of security settings? (un-check all three boxes)

Go to control panel
then Administrative Tools
Scroll down to Windows Firewall
Make sure the Start up Type is set to Automatic.

It may mean the firewall in the wireless router settings and not windows
