Hi,

When I click on the Windows Firewall option in the control panel I get the problem attached as a screen shot. Any ideas?

Thanks

Andrew

Go to Start/Control Panel/Performance and Maintenance/Administrative Tools/ and double click on Services. Scroll down to Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing and see if you have that enabled and running. If it is disabled, right click and click properties, then enable it and start it up.

I personally do not like the Win firewall so i use Zone Alarm.

Unless you particularly want the XP Firewall, download and install a third party one because most will block incoming and outgoing data, against the XP firewall only blocking incoming data

Most third party firewalls will turn the XP Firewall off

Has there ever been a third party firewall installed
