Press the "Windows Button" and "R" simultaneously.

Typ in cmd


A new window will open.

Typ in netsh advfirewall show allprofiles state


You'll see the status of the Firewall for Domain, Private and Public profile.

Which ones are ON and which ones are OFF?

hi, solution for firewall won't turn on after upgrade to win10

Have you tried to do a system restore?

Do you have any active firewall anywhere else, example: built in an anti-virus? (If so did you try disabling the anti virus to check if you can turn the firewall on)

Windows Update:

Also try system restore if you didn't yet.

Go back to services.msc and restart the following services but first also making sure that they are set to automatic startup (go to the properties menu for each one)

Remote Procedure Call, Background Intelligent Transfery System, Remote Procedure Call Locator, Com+ Event System

Try this if this might work

  1. Go to Search, type services.msc, and open Services
  2. Look for Windows Firewall
  3. Right-click on it, and choose Restart
  4. Wait until the process is finished
  5. Now, right-click on Windows Firewall, and go to Properties
  6. Make sure Startup type: is set to Automatic
