  1. Was given a dell laptop 8200 everything ok but.... when i try to open the fiewall in control panels i get " due to unidentified problem, Windows cannot display windows firewall settings" this unit is registered with the persons name who gave it to me , it won't allow me to change the name in windows system folder. Could this be the problem? if so, how can it be changed?
    thanks
