enable windows firewall

Recommended Posts


I recently had to manually enter the registry to change a setting. A virus changed the ability for Windows Firewall to operate on Windows XP.

I had to go into the following key:


and change "EnableFirewall"=dword:00000000

to "EnableFirewall"=dword:00000001

There are a couple other options in there also that may be worth considering.



The Windows Firewall is dependent on a few settings, so this is not the only one required (maybe it could check others?)


I registered especially to recommend this. Please consider (if not implemented already, however if so I could not find the wording that explained this option)

Thanks for a great program,
