Acer notebook and Vista firewall help please

Posted: 03-16-2008, 08:54 PM
I have an Acer notebook and I have just uninstalled Norton 360 after the 90
day trial expired and installed alternative AV software. Now upon start up
the Security Centre reports that the Windows firewall is turned off but when
I look at the services I can see the firewall is set to start automatically
and is saying that the service is already running (started), so why is the
Security Centre reporting it isn't? I can click the button in Security
Centre to start it and all is then fine but I shouldn't have to if it's
already running!!
This little niggle is annoying me now so has anyone got any suggestions
please?
I used the Norton removal tool to uninstall 360.

Rusty:

You mentioned installing alternative AV software. What did you install?
Could it be affecting your firewall settings?
