    Windows Defender Firewall error


    Hi! so yesterday out of the blue, i got this error that windows could not start the firewall. I tried to manually start it,nothing happened.I tried starting it from the services then again nothing happened. I downloaded the windows firewall troubleshooter but it also wasn't able to fix the problem ( picture below) i got the 1709 version by the way. Windows Defender Firewall error ed81b724-328d-41bd-aca6-b5ca27d42082?upload=true.png

    and i got this error from the service itself. i run sfc scannow on safemode, it came up with some error i restarted pc then i run the repair image health cmd (not sure how it is called) didnt came up with any issues,but my problem still persists.

    Hi Faye,

    Third-party antivirus programs usually have their own uninstallers provided by the software developer. We suggest checking the developer's website or contacting their support team for assistance with uninstalling their program. After fully uninstalling the
    third-party antivirus software, you may turn on Windows Defender by following these steps:

    • Click Start.
    • Type Windows Defender Security Center and press Enter.
    • Click Firewall and network protection.
    • Click Private (discoverable) network and click On.
    • Click Public (non-discoverable) network and click On.

    Let us know if you have any other concerns about Windows Defender.

    Hi AnudieKatz.

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Since you are facing an issue with the Windows Defender firewall, I would like to ask you few questions to get a better picture.

    1. Are you using any other Anti-virus software?
    2. Since when are you facing this issue?
    3. Have you tried installing Picture viewer and Calendar app after it getting uninstalled?

    Based on your information, I would like to inform you that if you are using third party anti-virus program Windows defender will automatically turn off from your system you will not able turn it on manually.

    Let’s try simple troubleshooting steps and check if this helps in resolving the issue. Follow the below methods.

    Method 1: Check the following services and ensure it is started.

    1. Press Windows and R key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Type Services.msc and hit Enter.
    3. Search for the following services:
    • Base filtering engine Service
    • Remote Procedure Call Service
    • Windows defender firewall service
    4. Start the above services and reboot the device.

    Method 2: I would suggest you to try running the troubleshooter to enable the firewall. Use the below link to run the troubleshooter.

    If you are still facing the same issue after following the above steps, revert with the details asked.


    Hope it helps.
