Re: Missing Firewall icon

Re: Missing Firewall icon

Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
Navigate to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\don't load

Delete the value named "firewall.cpl" if found.

Close Regedit.exe

Re: Missing Firewall icon

Let us know, please, as I kind of doubt it.
Unchecking an option there has not removed it from Security Center on machines where
I have tested it, but it's worth a try.

See Ramesh's reply elsewhere in this thread.

Re: Missing Firewall icon

Indeed, that did not work. Thank you all for your suggestions but nothing has
done it. In case I didn't make myself clear I will run through this again:
The firewall works. Everything fuctions as it should. All registry entries
that I can find are there and normal. Firewall.cpl is alive and living at
Windows\system32 as it should. I can access the firewall through 'Start; Run;
firewall.cpl' and make any and all changes I want. The ONLY glitch in all
this is that the icon/link that is normally found in the 'Security Center' is
gone. The other 2 are there. The program mentioned in the above post did not
fix this issue. In fact, when I first ran it, it took out ALL of the
icon/links in 'Security Center'. When I ran it again I checked all 3 boxes
and the icon/links came back - except for the Firewall.

So, I am still baffled as I have never seen anything like this that can't be
fixed simply. Thanks again for all of your help and if you think of anything
else - that would be great!
