If you keep receiving error code “0x6D9” when you try to turn on the Windows Firewall, here are some troubleshooting you can try. First, check that the Windows Firewall service is running. You cannot turn it on when its service is stopped and not running. Click “Start” then in the search box type without quotes “services”. On the results, right-click “Services” then select “Run as administrator”.

In the “Services” window, scroll down to the bottom and look for the “Windows Firewall” service. Double-click it to open the properties. On the next screen, in “General” tab, in “Startup type”, select “Automatic” from the dropdown list. Next, click “Start” just below it under “Service status” then click “OK”. After this, click “Start”, “Control Panel” then “Security Center” and then check that the Windows Firewall status is “ON”.

On the other hand, if Windows Firewall is still off, click “Windows Firewall” on the left pane then set it to “On” and then click “OK”. See if this works.
