Windows Firewall wont start again.

Posted: 06-26-2008, 06:14 PM
Hi everyone!

I have a nasty problem with Windows Firewall.
I use Vista Ultimate and im very happy that i have it.
BUT, i have Norton installed, but now that it have run out of subscription,
i want to use the Windows firewall now. So its deactivated. Well then i just
click Activate or Turn on. Well it says: "Windows Firewall could not be
started" And i have no idea on how to get it start again. Would be nice with
some help.

Thanks.

Uninstall Norton and replace it. I like NOD32 Antivirus (commercial) or
Avast Free. Then you will be able to start the Windows Firewall.

you need to download and run the uninstaller from NORTON web site.

install a different virus program and then you should be able to activate the firewall.

I know this is a little old, but just in case you still monitor it....it's
probably because the Firewall service has been set to Disabled that it won't
start.
Open Control Panel, Admin Tools and the Services. Scroll to Windows Firewall
Service and see if it's set to Auto start. If not, dbl-clk the service or
right click and elect Properties, then in the "Startup Type" dropdown list,
select Automatic.
Now click Start the Service and see what happens.
