    Firewall not responding on windows devices

    The firewall setting on my computer having Windows 7 is not responding. Whenever I try to get it to work an error with error code 0x6D9 is being displayed. I canít freely browse the net because of this issue. What can be done?

    First of all we cannot avoid the presence of a zero access type rootkit capable of making changes on its own on your computer. It can be compared with a Trojan. You could refer the net for programs for its detection and removal. It could be better if you could check the possibility of a virus attack too. The actual cause behind such type of errors is due to system file corruption. You could run several security sweeps on the system and look for the presence of a malware. Creating a backup of your system is very important in cases where you got such difficult to detect attacks. Create a back up of your files before trying to sort this out, which can be done by a simple Backup and Restore operation or using a third party program.
