Smart Firewall turns itself off on Windows 10

I have the exact same problem, posted on the following thread, which has no solution as of yet: https://community.norton.com/en/forums/smart-firewall-turned-itself-and-... Having already gone thru all the steps discussed there, I would appreciate any feedback. I have also tried to install 21x version (previous one) but Norton says "subscription expired" and stops running.

Re: Smart Firewall turns itself off on Windows 10


What version of Norton are you trying to install? Are you using a Windows Administrator account to do all of this? Have you tried a fresh install of Windows 10 instead of your clone? If the Microsoft Store has been deleted, it sounds like it could be a Windows 10 issue. What do you use to make your clone and how old is the clone?

Sorry for all the questions. They might help with trouble shooting?

Re: Smart Firewall turns itself off on Windows 10

Thank you for all that information. I have somehow managed to install the previous version which is working fine by now. I believe they will solve it soon, then I can update to the latest version. But I have no idea how long it may take for them to release a good update. I will keep following up.

Kind Regards.
