Windows Firewall - can't turn it on RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Windows XP with SP3. My "windows security alerts" icon has a red "X" across it. I click on it, and the "windows security center" says that my Firewall is Off. I click on the "Windows Firewall" link on the bottom of the "windows security center" which takes me to the "windows firewall" pop up. The option for "On(recommended)" is "greyed out" and will not allow me to click on it. How can I turn my windows firewall on? Thanks, Brian
