    Windows cannot turn on firewall (XP Home SP2)

    One of the computers at our local Senior Center keeps coming up with "Windows cannot turn on firewall" when we try it. Any suggestions?

    Are we talking about the Windows firewall and are there any third party firewalls installed on the computer ??

    No other firewalls installed, just the Windows version.

    Don't know what happened, but the problem seemed to have cured itself. Thanks for your help.
