Windows 7: Microsoft Firewall error/not working

06 Jan 2012   #31

Win7 & Win8 64bit

All programs will also need to be reinstalled. Backup your important files before you do it. The Clean Install will get rid of all the nasties in your computer.

Hi, bizzeb.

My apology for the delayed reply. As requested by 2xg, I had been following your other topic. When the connection issue was solved, I was watching for you new topic but, unfortunately, have been tied up elsewhere the past two days.

Please advise if you are proceeding with the clean install.
