Smart Firewall Greyed Out - Chrome will not open

Hello, I can't access the Smart Firewall settings; they are greyed out. Chrome refuses to open. My Windows 10 PC takes a long time to boot up. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Hello hitch. Are you logging into your system under an admin account? If not please do so and try again. If you can manage to do so download Malwarebytes and run a full scan for malware.

Cheers

I'm having a similar issue. In addition I've been having a number of BSODs over the past week or so. Just today I noticed that my Norton Firewall section was grayed out too. Just ran malwarebytes and it only found opencandy. I'm about to run the Norton Bootable recovery tool.
