Give us a clue. what makes you think it isn't working.

When a firewall is running and configured properly you should never know its there until it detects some unwanted activity.

I think you want the Security Center in Control Panel. That should show whether it is on or off. Normally it would be On unless you have a third party firewall installed.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

You also try a third party firewall such as ZoneAlarm, i use the paid version which is excellent but the free version isnt too bad either.

Windows firewall basically tells installed programs and features whether they can access the internet or not. By default it is turned on, like a previous poster wrote, but can be turned off (not recommended).

Just some Info to consider.
