    Hello,

    It is recommended to turn on your Firewalls to prevent your computer from unauthorized access and being vulnerable. Based on your issue description, it looks like you wanted to turn off Windows Firewall. To turn off Windows Firewall, kindly follow the steps
    below:

    • On Start, scroll down to Windows System > Control Panel > System
      and Security
      > Windows Firewall.
    • Select Turn Windows Firewall on or off. You might be asked for an admin password or to confirm your choice.
    • Under the appropriate network setting, select Turn on Windows Firewall.
      • Note: If your PC is connected to a network, network policy settings might prevent you from completing these steps. For more info, contact your .administrator

  3. Cannot turn on network firewall for windows10 - SOLVED

    Hello Sabrina,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    We regret the inconvenience you have experienced.

    You mean to say, the option is grayed out?

    Is this started to happen recently?

    What happens when you tried to turn on Firewall?

    Usually, Windows Firewall shouldn't be in turn off state unless you have another firewall turned on. Turning off Windows Firewall might make your PC (and your network, if you have one) more vulnerable to damage from worms or hackers.

    To turn Windows Firewall on or off:


    • Click Start,

    • In Search, type firewall, and then select
      Windows Firewall.

    • Select Turn Windows Firewall on or off on left pane. You might be asked for an admin password or to confirm your choice.

    • Select Turn on Windows Firewall checkbox's and click
      OK



    • Note: If your PC is connected to a network, network policy settings might prevent you from completing these steps. For more info, contact your administrator.
    Keep us posted if you require further assistance.

    Windows Defender Firewall showing On and Off at the same time

    Hi Jerry,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that the Windows Firewall shows as switched off even after turning it on. For better understanding of the issue, please answer the questions below.



    1. Which build version of Windows are you using currently?
    2. Are you aware of any changes being made to the PC?
    3. Do you have any security software/firewall installed?


    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below and check if that helps.



    Method 1:



    I would suggest you to run the troubleshooter for Windows Firewall and check if that helps. Refer the article

    Automatically diagnose and fix problems with Windows Firewall




    If the above method doesn’t t work, please follow the next method.



    Method 2:



    I would suggest you to try enabling the services responsible for Windows Firewall and check if that helps.



    1. Press Windows key + R. This will open
      Run. Alternatively, you can go to Start and search for ‘Run’.
    2. In Run dialog box, type services.msc and hit enter.
    3. Now look for the services: Security Center,
      Windows Defender Antivirus Service, Windows Defender Firewall Service,
      Windows Defender Advanced Thread Protection Service,
      and Windows Defender Antivirus Network Inspection Service.
    4. Right click on each service and click on Start.


    If the above method doesn’t work, please try the next method.



    Method 3:



    I would suggest you to check if any conflicting registry entries are present which are blocking Windows Defender Firewall to turn on.



    Note: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow
    these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.




    Refer the article on
    How to back up and restore the registry in Windows




    1. Press Windows key + R. This will open
      Run. Alternatively, you can go to Start and search for ‘Run’.
    2. In Run dialog box, type regedit and hit enter.
    3. Now navigate to the location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options
    4. Look if there are any registry keys named: MSASCui.exe, MpCmdRun.exe or MsMpEng.exe.
    5. If there are any such entries, then delete them by right clicking and selecting Delete.
    6. Click on Yes.
    7. Restart the PC.


    If the issue persists, please get back to us with the results of troubleshooting steps to assist you further.
