Firewall keeps turning off

  HauxtonPhil 09:19 22 Dec 2008

I have an XP machine that has all the security updates in place. AVG8 antivirus. Everytime I start the machine up, or change users, the Firewall is turned off. I can turn it on manually, and it stays on until switching users or restarting. AVG and Spybot S&D has failed to find anything. Any other ideas?

If it is just XP's own firewall, try a different Free firewall. click here

Thank you for that Technotiger - I may have to resort to that, but I would still like to know why this is happening.

I have really no idea why - except to say that, perhaps you should run your anti-everything programs as a precaution.
