    Unable to turn ON Firewall on Windows 8 System.

    I have tried in many ways to turn on the Firewall on my Windows 8 system, but no success. Actually, my windows 8 system always prompting that, your firewall is not working kindly make changes to keep your system safe(not exactly but near). Then I click on the link to change the settings but I have been redirected nowhere. When I see the system security from control panel and then windows firewall, then there is Windows Firewall State: Off. Please help me to change this, thank you.

    Re: Unable to turn ON Firewall on Windows 8 System.

    Turning Windows Firewll is pretty simple task.

    Click START--CONTROL PANEL--SYSTEM AND SECURITY--WINDOWS FIREWALL--turn it on/off depending on the situation, exit.

    But sometimes, the installed antivirus, or third party firewall if installed will force windows firewall service to turn on, so you need to xelect between the third party firewall or windows firewall which one to activate.

    To solve this problem

    • If you installed any third party Antivirus software on your windows system
    • The windows Firewall will automatically disable
    • If it is not disabled then there may be a crash in your windows fire wall so reinstall the windows fire wall
    • Run the System file checker tool to fix the issues
    • Go to the start screen
    • Then choose the Run
    • Now type sfc\scannow then press enter
    • This is run the system file checker tool and fix the issues if any

    Re: Unable to turn ON Firewall on Windows 8 System.

    Hii

    you are unable to Turn on your windows firewall because your PC is Attacked by some Viruses and those viruses have Permanently Disabled your Firewall options

    So, its better to Download a good antivirus and install it on your PC
    then Scan your entire PC and delete those viruses
    then restart your PC
    then after restarting your PC you can enable your Firewall option

    All the best
