How to fix Windows Firewall related Issues?

Windows Firewall acts as the first layer of defense against malware, so it is always advisable to keep it turned ‘ON’ – unless you are using a third-party firewall software. If for some unknown reason if you find your Windows Firewall does not start automatically at startup, then here are a few troubleshooting steps you may want to try out. Give us a call for instant Windows Firewall Support +1-877-916-7666.

Windows Firewall service does not start, the error messages you could receive are:

  • Windows Firewall is not the default firewall
  • It does not start
  • Windows could not start the Windows Firewall.

1] First, scan your machine for malware using a good antivirus software. If you have installed a 3rd party firewall or a Security Suite, then that could also be the cause of the problem. Many times, third-party security software can disable the Windows Firewall and even prevent it from starting up.

2] Run System File Checker or sfc /scannow.

3] Next, type services.msc in Windows Start Search and hit Enter to open up Services. Here ensure that the Windows Firewall Service is started and set on Automatic. You do this by clicking on the Start button. Also, ensure that the Remote Procedure Call Service & the Base Filtering Engine Service is started and set on Automatic.
