Re: windows firewall not working at all

Is it turned on: Go to Start/Run: services.msc
Scroll down to Windows Firewall.....

Added info: See line 386 (right hand side):

Added note: This also happens with left over Norton or Mc. Use the Norton
uninstaller: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=norton+uninstaller
