Hello Lonie,

Yes you are correct for the firewall is very important in order to be protected from viruses and stuff. By the way be sure that you are using the administrator account so that you can freely turn it on.

So let's start. Go to your Security center and just click the Windows firewall tab(see attached image). Then click the ON option then press ok.

This should do the trick. Again remember you must have an administrator account to do this.

Hope this helps.

System security software such as Symantec, Zone Alarm, AVG or other applications that has a firewall capability can disable your built-in Windows firewall. Kindly turn off the firewall feature of your antivirus software so that the built-in Windows firewall will automatically run on your machine.

Refer on your antivirus manual or visit their support site to disable this feature. For example, if you are using Symantec product, you can refer to this link.

Restart the machine for the changes to take effect. Furthermore, you can also go to Windows Services to check and run the Windows firewall service manually. To do this, follow below instructions:

For Windows XP:

  1. Click Start -> Run.
  2. In the Open text field, type Services.msc.
  3. Click Ok.
  4. In the right pane, right click Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) and click Start.
  5. Close the Services window.
