    Unable to switch on the Windows Security feature in my Windows OS

    I came to know that the Windows firewall settings was not turned on in my PC. So I tried to turn it on and when I did I got the error as “Windows Firewall can’t change some of your settings. Error Code:0x80070424”. Can you tell me what it means? How to fix this problem?

    It is because of antivirus installed on your computer as some antivirus has its own firewall which turns off your windows firewall or change its settings so you first check it out.
