I need help with my firewall due to it turning on and off. When I am on the internet it will all of a sudden turn off. So when I go to turn it on; it will automatically turn right back on or I have to due it manually. Just today I tried turning it on and it wouldnt let me. So any advice on correcting this issue so the windows firewall wont turn on and off would be greatly appreciated. I thank you for your time and help!

I suggest running the sfc /scannow command...or doing a repair install of XP.

If problems continue...then I would have to suspect a malware possibility.
