    Re: Issue with Windows Firewall when trying to access it on Windows Vista

    You should start Windows Firewall manually and to start it automatically for further follow the step wise procedure:

    -> Go to start option and type ĎServicesí in the Search box
    -> Run the services as an administrator by right clicking on it.
    * Write admin password if needed.
    -> Navigate to Windows Firewall option and double click on it
    -> Now, click on the Startup type box
    -> Click on Automatic
    Note that if service status is disabled or Stopped then click on Start
    -> Click on Apply and then OK
    -> Navigate to Base Filtering Engine and double-click on that option
    Note that if service status is disabled or Stopped then click on Start
    -> Click on Apply and then OK

    After completing the process restart your system and check whether your issue is solved or not.
