Hello Kmahrens89 and Welcome to the Webroot Community Forums,

 

Can I ask which firewall you are using and also is this the first time install?

 

Thanks,

 

TH

I found an Article to Reset your Vista firewall http://en.kioskea.net/faq/10186-vista-reset-your-firewall-to-default-configuration then try to install WSA again.

It's possible it's the older version of the Webroot firewall that's giving you trouble as well.  We might be chasing the wrong problem with the Windows firewall.  You mentioned an error or it saying "it can't."  If you can provide the exact text, that would be helpful.

 

You could try running the removal tool for the old version of the Webroot firewall to see if it's actually a leftover headless driving that's causing the issue too.  There is a link to it in this support article.  Please let us know if that helps.
