  1. Windows Firewall Service greyed out


    Good day.


    After running the latest windows update I cannot turn the service off via the Services.


    I understand that it is not recommended to disable the firewall but there's an application that I am using that is being affected by this.

    I am using the Administrator account.


    I have attached a screen shot showing this, kindly assist.

  3. Location service is greyed out

    Hi Shahriar,

    Thank you for responding.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused for you, I suggest you to try the below troubleshooting steps and check If it helps.

    Step 1: Steps to turn on the Location settings.

    • Login as an administrator.
    • Press Windows key, type Location settings and select
      Change location settings.
    • Check whether Location for this device is On by clicking on
      Change
      .
    • Also turn on Location as well.

    Step 2: And as you are unable to set the service Geolocation service to automatic, I suggest you to run SFC scan and check.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).

    • Type “sfc /scannow” without the quotes and hit
      Enter.

    • After the scan, restart the computer and check for the issue.

    Try to set the service to automatic by following the steps provided in the above post by Praveen Venugopal.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of the issue, we will be happy to help you.

  4. Windows Firewall Service greyed out

    Windows Firewall and McAfee Firewall are both turned off

    Despite running Services as admin, when I open Windows Firewall (actually it is Windows Defender Firewall) and Base Filtering Engine, all options are greyed out. However,
    all settings are already on what you suggested, i.e. Automatic, not stopped.
