Firewall warning keeps coming up...

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Um9k?=, Jun 8, 2005.

  1. Anyone know who to stop this warning from coming up? I've gone into the
    Security Center and selected the "I have a firewall solution..." box. Problem
    is that it keeps coming back after I reboot. Running XP Home with SP2 on a
    Toshiba Satellite Laptop.

    Thanks,

    In the Security Center applet, look on the left side and you'll see a
    link to "Change how Security Center alerts me". Click on it and then
    uncheck the alerts next to the firewall. Apply and OK out.

  3. Thanks for the response Malke,
    I did as you suggested and two reboots later
    the warning was back up. I went back to the "Alert Settings" (in the Security
    Center) where I unchecked the firewall and it was checked again. Starting to
    look like I need to edit the registry. Any other ideas?

    Disable the Windows Firewall service. Start>Run services.msc [enter]

    Scroll down the Windows Firewall service and stop it and then set it to
    disabled. See if that fixes the issue.
