We just released another Fix it Knowledge Base (KB) article. This Fix it enables the Windows Firewall as described in KB 283673.
I have Live One Care installed.
I read above you need to turn it off in orger to turn firewall in your general tab on.
It still will not give me the option to turn it on.
It is still grey in colour, could someone please send me an e-mail telling me how to fix this.
I run Windows XP

I uninstalled LiveOneCare and lost control of the Windows Firewall setting. Everything is grayed out on the General tab. I tried the EnableWindowsFirewall.msi (Fix it from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283673) to noavail!
Any help appreciated.
Didn't work for me, Running windows XP pro, on a domain, firewall GP not configured, event log error
Error 0x80004015: the class is configured to run as a security ID different from the caller.
3. Delete the Security registry subkey
Reboot & the firewall is on,
but once computer is restarted firewall is off and will not come on until the solution is followed again
my windows firewall turned off automatically and i could not turn on. And the message i get is windows connot start windows firewall/internet connection sharing(ics)service.
Fix IT did't fix it. WinXP SP3, enable and disable are greyed out. I have a warning telling me that I have a group policy, but can't find any group policy.
I have the same problem as the last 3 items above. I mam grayed out. I get all sort of popups and misdirected URL. It a mess.
What do you recommend.
