OK - I am having the same problem but when I follow your directions I can not turn the firewal on. Everything is ghosted and it says that some settings are controlled by group policy. I have no clue what this means...my friend installed and takes care of my IT stuff but moved and now I am on my own and In the Dark with all of this...
Thanks!

Hi InTheDark,

Welcome to the forum. :party:

Are you using Windows Firewall or another 3rd party firewall?
Is it ghosted (grayed) out with the notifications enabled?

I do not think this is your only problem. It sounds like you have a setting in the Local Group Policy Editor configured wrong.

Can you describe your problem with anymore details?

Shawn
