Are you running any third party firewalls; Norton Security, Microsoft
Onecare? They turn off the Windows Firewall to replace it with their own.

OneCare turns off Windows Firewall. I'd use OneCare's firewall since you
already have it and its easier, instead of having them always conflicting
with each other.

I have just upgraded my Acer notebook from XP Pro to Vista Business now every
time I reboot I have to start Vista Firewall Manually. I cant find a setting
to change to make sure it loads at boot time rather than me loading it
manually. Any help on this problem?.
Thanks

The only time it usually disables itself is when there is a 3rd party
firewall installed.
Check the security centre.

Unfortunatly that is not the problem as this as this is a new notebook and
the only firewall that has run on this notebook is XP firewall so I guess I
will keep looking for a solution thanks anyway.

Are you sure it did not come with Norton or McAfee installed?

When I purchased the notebook some 3 weeks ago Norton was installed. The
first thing I did was uninstall Norton and have been running on Xp Pro since
then using XP Pro firewall and 2 days ago I upgraded to Vista Business as was
recommened by Acer, Not a clean install. There is no sign of Norton still
running anything either under XP Pro or Vista Business. Do you think Norton
has left something and that is causing the problem if so what is the best
solution.
Thanks Karen

Further to what I just said every time I reboot the security notifcation pops
up and tells me there is no firewall runing and allows me to start Vista
firewall manually hope this helps a bit more.
Thanks Karen
