    Tried several time to change the Windows Firewall settings but I am unable to do it

    I am facing problem in changing the Windows Firewall settings, I just don’t know how to change the Windows Firewall settings properly. I tried opening the Windows Firewall and it said “Windows is not using the recommended settings to protect your computer” so I clicked the “Use recommended settings” but after that nothing happens. It doesn’t change it at all. Am I using the right option? Can you tell me how to change the Windows Firewall settings properly?

    This is happening because of your antivirus's firewall as this deactivate the windows firewall and whatever you do is turn in nothing. So, for make change in firewall settings you have to either change settings in your antivirus firewall or just turnoff your antivirus and then changing your windows firewall settings.

    Hi,
    As you have not mentioned the version of the windows, i assume you are using windows 7 as that is the last complete OS from the microsoft stable.
    Click on "Start",
    Select "control panel"
    select "System and security"
    Click "Windows Firewall"
    Select whichever option you are looking for and exit.
    This will activate windows firewall in your system.
    You can also install a third party firewall to protect your system.
    Thank you.
