Windows Security will not turn on the Firewall

I uninstalled Norton 360. I installed AVG and when the installation
completed, there was 1 error. The Windows Firewall was not turned on. I can
not get the Security Center to turn on the Firewall. It will not update the
Settings for the Firewall either.

RE: Windows Security will not turn on the Firewall

I figured it out. I was able to turn it on manually and had to update the
Windows Defender. I had a lot of problems with Vista and Norton 360 and
decided to uninstall and see if that was my problem. I hate Vista.

RE: Windows Security will not turn on the Firewall

Hi, i've got the same problem.
it seems that Vista gets "stucked" whenever i try to set up Firewall or any
other update.
in addition, it stucks again when i try to: move a file into a folder, put a
file into the trash, and so on.
If anybody can help me whit this problem i'll be appreciated.
