I have Windows Vista 32 bit OS.
Today I uninstalled the RAM hog Norton 360. I restarted my computer after it was uninstalled and I was immediately prompted to turn on my Windows Firewall. I go to turn it on and Windows says it cannot be turned on and then asks me if I want to turn it on manually. After I click on the "manual installation" option a new Windows Firewall window opens and it says the Firewall is not using the recommended settings to protect my computer ( which I later find out is another way of saying my Firewall isn't turned on.... Redundant message.) I'm given the option to update my settings for the Firewall, but Windows is not able to update the settings. It's almost as if I have another Firewall installed and Windows has automatically shut off the Windows Firewall. A little help would be nice... :)
