    On the left side click on turn windows firewall on or off.
    now you can turn on off your firewall in order to install your third party software.
    Dont forget to turn your window firewall once you install your software.

    Many times Firewall create hindrance in installing third party softwares.

    You can put Firewall off for a while , but make it ON , after installing as it protects your system from malwares.
    You can add that installed software in firewall programs so that it will not block anymore.

    Go to Start , type firewall
    You will see the link "Windows Firewall"
    Now in the left pane , click the third option "Turn Firewall ON/Off"
    Then you will see the option "Turn firewall Off(Not recommanded)"

    Hello,

    It is very simple to check if your system's fire wall is ON or OFF.

    To do so click on the arrow icon which is at the bottom right of the desktop nest to the time.

    Now click on the action center.

    A new screen like this would open.

    Now click on the security option a screen like this will open.

    And change it if you like .
