Hello Roxsen,

What anti-virus do you have?

Some anti-viruses may conflict with Windows Firewall and stop it from working.

You could possibly try running the Windows Firewall troubleshooter from Microsoft: Diagnose and fix Windows Firewall service problems automatically

Thank you,

Did the issue occur straight-away after you bought the computer?
Or did you make any changes?
