Firewall - Will Not Turn On

Installed MS "Care - Live-One" After it was installed, I found the firewall turned off. Attempted to turn-on through the Live-One features. It would not highlight the on button.

Found the same problem when attempting to turn the firewall on through "Settings / Control Panel / Windows Firewall" i.e. the "On" button is shaded and inactive.

What gives and how do I reinstate the firewall before going on-line ?

I use a HP Pavilion dv6000 with Vista SP1. When I try to install the Vista SP2 I get every time the erro code 800B0100. I never found a solution to that


the most common cause of this is your firewall - you need to disable it whilst installing the update.
depending on the security software you have installed the options are different.
If you are using Windows Firewall: start, settings, control panel Security Center - click on firewall and set to off.
Important - remember to turn it back on afterwards.
If using 3rd party software turn the whole thing off whilst installing the update.
Please let me know if this works for you.

Hi,

When you are trying to open a third party application on the BlackBerry smartphone, the following error message is displayed: The application {application name} has attempted to open a connection inside the firewall and outside the firewall which is not allowed by your IT policy. This issue is caused by a restriction in the BlackBerry smartphone's firewall.
To remove the firewall restriction, complete the following steps:
  1. On your BlackBerry smartphone, go to Options > Security Options > Firewall.
  2. De-select Enterprise Messaging.
  3. If this does not work, turn off the firewall by selecting Disable in the Status field. If you are not able to turn off the firewall, contact your IT Administrator as there is an IT policy restricting your firewall settings.
Hope I helped you.
Thank you for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Start up will not retain memory for fire wall setting.


Make sure you haven't installed a third-party internet security suite that includes a firewall. You should only use one firewall on your system and some third party firewalls automatically turn the windows firewall off. But your security center should show that you are protected by a firewall, nevertheless.
This behavior can be an indication of malware installed on your computer...
I recommend you go to windows update and make sure you are current with all critical security updates for your system, then go to www.malwarebytes.com and install their AntiMalware software. Scan your system and fix any problems it detects.
Then see if your system retains the firewall settings.
I thought there was a MS knowledge base article on this that had something to do with sp3 and a bug fix but I can;t seem to find it right now...
If I locate it I'll post back with a comment...
In the meantime, if those first two suggestions don't turn anything up, I'd run chkdsk on your system and see if it finds some file corruption.
See this article and this one

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Says its ready till i try and print


Dell printer drivers try to 'phone home' with Ink usage stats .. even if you select 'no' when asked, they still try to access the Internet ..on install the driver modifies Microsoft Vista Firewall settings to permit this ...

So if you recently installed a non-Microsoft Firewall eg. ZomeAlarm your print driver will be denied access to the web and will refuse to print.

Note that 'deny' is different from 'time-out' ... to test turn off your wireless (or remove the ethernet cable) and ONLY THEN turn off your firewall - if it now starts printing you have your solution (go into Zone Alarm and Enable all Dell & MS print related software access to the Internet).

DO NOT browse the web with your Firewall turned off !!!!
