Hi.

Webroot indicates that Windows Firewall is  not switched on. However when I go to Windows control panel and try to switch the firewall on (using recommended settings) I get an error message and the firewall is left off.

Any solutions to getting the Win 7 firewall into operation, please? 

PS: I am not great with computers so simple answers if possible, please,

Hello @Dr Ron 

 

Since Windows 7 is not supported anymore by Microsoft you could try this to see if it can fix it for you? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/automatically-diagnose-and-fix-problems-with-windows-firewall-513e9cf8-19ae-d579-2092-d5e64fe06f5f
