My virus protection / firewall protection messed up and i am having to reinstall it. I need to disable windows firewall, to continue the installation process.
I have tried to disable it already by going to the control panel, then clicking on the windows firewall link at the bottom and selecting the off button. After doing this and restarting the computer when i go to the windows security center it says the firewall is still on.
I have also went to the control panel then clicked on the windows security center then clicked on the manage security settings for windows firewall. this brings up a windows firewall box with 3 tabs (General, exceptions, advanced).
General tab shows that windows firewall is off.
Exceptions tab says at the top that windows firewall is off and that my computer is at risks and attacks from outside intrusions... blah blah blah. In the programs and services box all the boixes are unchecked.
Advanced tab says windows firewall is enabled for the connections listed below: Local area connection [ but there is no check in its box ].
Every time i run the installation of the virus scan / firewall software CD it detects windows firewall running. I cannot install my virus scan and firewall software until i get windows firewall disabled completly....
CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME GET WINDOWS FIREWALL DISABLED ?????
