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 ?

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.

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!

Unable to open live TV in HP PC Media Center


Look at the alerts in the security and firewall of Norton antivirus. It might be blocking it. also keep an eye on your bottom right corner when you attempt the live TV. Norton may be alerting you about the blocks in that area. Make sure you allow those connections. I would check Norton firewall and security before messing with the Windows firewall.

Trying to download norton 360, but I'm getting a communication error as if there is a firewall preventing communication. The windows security centre (security essentials) shows the firewall switched on,...


I wouldn't worry too much about turning it off to do the download from Symantec's site. Just don't go surfing around while it's downloading. After the download turn it back on. Norton will turn it off anyway when you install 360.

You may want to uninstall the AdAware before you install 360 also just to avoid possible conflicts.

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
