Windows XP MCE 2005 w. sp3 firewall stops and starts by itself several times a day. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • All Antivirus scans are clean, including OneCare. No messages in event viewer. Cannot run SFC

    since this OEM (Compaq) came with installation disks and their website say just click cancel

    when it asks for Windows XP Professional disk 2 or Windows XP Professional SP3 disk. I have

    the service set to automatic and restart on failure, but it still takes 30 seconds to 1 1/2 minutes

    unless I start it manually. I shut the firewall down and shut the computer down and restarted the computer

    and restarted the firewall and haven't seen the security center pop up telling me the firewall is down, so

    keep your fingers crossed. paj692
