My friend is having a problem with his windows firewall. Every time he logs on to his computer, he gets a pop up message saying firewall is off. After a few seconds it switches on. Why when he ticks the box to enable the firewall. Does it turn off again ????

HI, is there another Firewall programme on the P.C. like Norton Personal Firewall??
I ask cos NPF is designed to switch off the windows firewall because it is superior, you can then choose to not be notified again (checkbox).
If you do have Norton Personal Firewall...........Windows firewall SHOULD BE OFF!
Is the P.C. running service pack 2?

1) scan pc with Adaware or spybot
2) scan for virus's
if this fails
3) run a programme called 'hijack this'.
