I am having some computer difficulties and can quite to figure out if I have cleared them or still have them. When I try to go to my firewall it says that I need to update my firewall and prompts me to use recommended settings.
I say OK to use recommended settings but then says it cant turn on the firewall and gives me an error (Error code 0x80070424). I ran Rkill.
