  1. Windows Firewall-Action Center says Firewall not turned on


    I keep getting this security notification in the Action Center saying: "Firewall and Network Protection - Turn on Windows Firewall" (see attached screenshots).

    4 of the attached screenshots says/indicate that the firewall is turned on, but the security notification still pops up saying to turn on "Windows Firewall".

    The settings for the security notifications says "turn off all notifications for windows security". I just want to turn off the notification for the "Windows Firewall" notification. I do not want to turn off all security notifications.

    I can not seem to find a solution to this problem.

    Windows version: 2004 (OS build 19041.450)

    :)

    Third-party firewall installed but Windows action center shows actions needed icon

    I have installed a third-party firewall and disabled the windows 10 built-in firewall. but the action center permanently shows the "actions needed" icon on system tray and it says: "firewalls are turned off. your device may be vulnerable" . The main problem
    is that the icon is always as some action is needed and it won't reveal if windows action center needs a real action to be taken or it needs your serious attention. Is there any manner to show the windows that a firewall is installed and my device is not vulnerable?
    How can it be fixed? I mean except of turning the windows built-in firewall on Windows Firewall-Action Center says Firewall not turned on :) Thank you all

    Hi Jackie,

    For you to be able to get to your firewall, please follow the steps below:

    • Go to start Button.
    • Open Windows defender Security Center.
    • Then go to Firewall & network protection.
    • Then choose a network profile.

    We'll look forward to your response.

    Windows Firewall-Action Center says Firewall not turned on

    Why do I have a notification in Action Center to turn on Antivirus & Firewall in Windows 10?

    I have McAfee Antivirus & Firewall enabled at all times but I still get notifications in Action Center in Windows 10 to turn on an antivirus and firewall.
