    Firewall is turned off or set up incorrectly

    I noticed that I keep getting a notification stating that Windows Firewall was turned off, so I go to the control panel and go to Security and Maintenance. There, I find a message telling me my firewall is turned off or set up incorrectly. I click on "Turn on Firewall" but nothing happens.

    Are you running a third party security package alongside it?

    Yes actually, I was using the Avast Premium trial for a bit since it was free, which adds the Avast firewall. I disabled it and now the Windows firewall is working fine. Thanks!
