    Windows firewall on vista Pro is not working, it is turned off. If I
    try to turn it on I get the message windows cannot start the windows
    firewall service. I have done a scan for virus and nothing is there.,
    Has anybody any idea what is going on and why I cannot start the
    service.

    I have been into services and it is set on auto, I tried a start from
    there it still failed, then I set it to manual and it failed so I set
    it back to Auto and left it. Thanks for the thought.
    I have rebooted the machine, been into sevices.msc, been through the
    control panel, and done a full virus scan all of which provided
    nothing.

    i am just about to try an Acronis restore point, sadly though that
    means that having installed acronis 11 and nero 8 recently that I
    shall have to reinstall them. All that I can imagine is that one of
    these two has interfered with windows firewall.

    What a charming little man you are, and also totally without
    intellect. You now reside in my kill file. However. having used
    acronis to go back to the 27th September and reinstalled the two
    programs that I had removed by doing that I now have a perfectly
    working Vista again.
