Windows Firewall Settings

Hello, awesome SevenForums people

Have a bit of a problem with my 'Windows Firewall'.

As you can see here, my 'Change settings' button is grayed-out. I don't know what to do, does anyone know why I can't access it?

The Change Settings tab will be highlighted if you make any changes.
For ex; check Homegroup and the Change Settings tab will then be available.

If you change it TOO SOON, this could happen to your DeskTop
