    Have to turn on Windows Firewall manually - since update.


    Since updating to windows latest version 20H2 from 1909 Pro.

    I have to from a notification pop-up to turn on Windows Firewall etc.

    I have turned off malwarebytes being signed to Windows Security.

    Prior to the update, no matter whether Malwarebytes was signed in or not to Windows Security. Did not have any issue.

    Have you looked in "services" at Windows Defender Firewall? Right click--> properties--> set to automatic, and/or restart the program. Okay your way out. Reboot and see if the message is gone.

    Thanks,

    It is already set to Auto and is running, but greyed out and cannot change anything.
    Also I have to manually do this everytime Windows is started.

    Hello @tensone,

    [1] Are you using a third-party Firewall?
    [2] Have you made any REG changes to the Firewall?
    [3] Have a look at this => Windows Defender Firewall not letting me change settings/add apps

    I have Malwarebytes and Malwarebytes Privacy.
    Before the update to 20H2 I had no issues with either Defender or Malwarebytes running on Windows 10 v1909.
    I have tried running without Privacy vpn and isolating Malwarebytes from Windows security registering.
    Yet I still have manually turn on Windows firewall shortly after startup.
