Hey Matth!

The name of firewall describes its meaning itself.

It is a wall of fire that block the user of other network to enter into your PC.

Basically Firewall works with a router program closely, which examines whether to forward each network packet towards its destination or not.

To turn firewall on follow these steps:

Method 1:

1. Click Start > Run and type, Firewall.cpl and press enter.

2. A new window will open, under General Tab click on "On (recommended)" and your firewall is on.

Method 2:

1. Open Control Panel > Windows Firewall.

2. A new window will open, under General Tab click on "On (recommended)" and your firewall is on.

Thanks.

Hi there, 

You haven't specified which OS you are using either Windows 7 or Windows XP.

Assuming you have Windows 7.

To activate or deactivate windows firewall follows my steps carefully: – 

1. Go to Start and then click Control panel.

2. In the coming box click Windows firewall and something like this pops up.
