Firewall doesn't start on it's own
I have the same problem as this poster stated on 3/16, except I installed
PCTools Spyware doctor. I can't find anything in Spyware Doctor that relates
to starting Windows Firewall. It's starts ok I just have to do it everytime
I boot the pc. There was only one reply to the op below and it didn't lead
me to a solution.
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
This little niggle is annoying me now so has anyone got any suggestions
I used the Norton removal tool to uninstall 360.
