    Windows Firewall keeps switching off after re-setting to on ?

    For some reason Windows firewall keeps switching off after re-setting to on. Although I've got Zone Alarm firewall I've done a couple of Malwarebytes scans but it still keeps happening....

    Appreciate any help thanks

    Finally solved it....

    Control Panel > System & Security > Security & Maintenance > Security > View installed Firewall apps.

    "Note that running more than one firewall at a time can cause conflicts".

    As I have Zone Alarm Extreme Security this must be why it keeps switching Windows Firewall off as all ZA programmes are marked on.... phew !!

    Hope this helps
