Try to check the services to be sure it's set to automatic, go to start>run>type in ...services.msc... and look in the list to see if the windows firewall is set to auto, You can check all of your services to see if they are at the proper defaults by going to Black Viper's web site




see if anything in here relates to your issue

Thanks duanester, That was the first thing I looked at but have got no third party FW, much appreciated. one thing I have found out if I turn my router of I can boot the laptop up and the firewall stays enabled, but as soon as I turn the router back onboot up my firewall disables again, got me lost a the moment

yes, the saying goes, we only need one firewall, well ms says it too but many bombard their systems with such apps.


you can disable the routers firewall but to be honest, the firewall on the router is a thousand times better.
