    How to turn on firewall Win 10 Pro 64bit


    Been using Bitdefender Firewall for years...but I need to disable Bitdefender and re-enable Windows firewall. Bitdefender FW disabled but can't get Windows FW to enable

    Can not find suggestion that works to turn Windows 10 Pro firewall back on ?

    Thanks...TiminAz

    Thanks all...ran through the above suggestions...no problems in applying permissions...but same issues as in new jpg attached ?...Had previously uninstalled Bitdefender so don't see how that could be an issue ? Windows Defender is currently running but still have no firewall protection at this point
    ??

    Can not manually turn firewall on so far...

    Thanks TiminAz

    Your last screenshot says 'Restart the Windows Firewall Service'. Check Services and make sure it it's set to Automatic. It may have been set to Disabled by Bitdefender and not reset when you disabled Bitdefender.

    Try this: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...ndows-firewall

    Run CMD as admin and copy/paste:


    sc config BFE start= auto
    sc config MpsSvc start= auto
    net start BFE
    net start MpsSvc
    netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state on
    netsh advfirewall reset

    Success !!!

    To all who helped on this...my problem has been completely corrected...but I can't say 'solved'...since I don't know exactly what happened. What I did is go back to a complete Acronis tib system backup of my Windows Pro C: drive system from July 1, 2016

    After start up...I just left everything alone and low and behold...everything...including Anniversary Update, downloaded and installed without a hitch. Last 24 hours of testing/using also went without a hitch...Updates - Firewall issues gone - and all my accessories and options respond and are working fine...even Cortana is zipping along.

    Obviously immediately saved another current Acronis image and backed that up twice to two different drives ?
    Wish I could report what worked...but glad I'm up and running with (so far) a new Win 10 Pro 64bit system and Anniversary update that is functioning great !!

    Many thanks to all that helped....
