Windows shows smart firewall is off

I don't believe the smart firewall is actually off as Norton 360 does not show it as being off. But according to Windows, every time I reboot the PC, there is a red flag on the action center icon stating that there is no firewall running. If I attempt to use Windows to turn on the firewall, nothing happens. However, if I disable the smart firewall in Norton momentarily, & then turn it right back on, the error message is gone and Win shows the firewall as running. So I'm guessing this is a Windows issue? OS is 7 32 Home Premium. This started right after a sizeable update to Norton earlier this week after which I had to reboot. Anyone else experiencing this? My Wife runs Norton on her lappy (Win 8.1 64 Pro) & this problem did not show up on hers. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Re: Windows shows smart firewall is off

Thank you very much, that explains it. Didn't think the firewall was actually off as Norton showed all OK, but thought I'd post the problem just in case.

Re: action center saying Norton is not running after the 22.7.0.75 update

Update:

Customers who have already received the Norton 22.7 update do NOT need to uninstall and reinstall the previous version. Symantec is working on a fix to be released shortly to address the issue where "Windows Action Center incorrectly reports the Norton Security status." This issue does not impact the security of the pc as long as the Norton product reports its features are enabled.


A larger version
