  1. Hello all, firstly a big thank you to all who contribute towards making our constant wrestle with Microsoft a little more bearable. I stumbled on this forum purely by chance and in hind sight I’m glad I did, you see I arrived here a couple of days ago as a guest with what I thought was an insurmountable problem and left shortly thereafter with a solution that worked! for my specific problem at least.

    My problem? Unable to access Windows Firewall to turn it on or off ended up with an alert which said something to the effect of “another program is presently using this facility”. The only other software running at the time would have been TrendMicro PC-Cillin 2007 but that too ended up giving me a similar alert message and no access to the firewall settings. As fare as I was concerned the solution was setting a day or so aside to reformat and reinstall. I am happy to say this was not the case. I found this forum on a Google search and within 5minutes my problem was laid to rest.

    I cannot thank you enough for your help.

    Forever grateful
    Moophie
