cannot turn on firewall
« on: October 29, 2013, 10:25:24 AM »
Having installed the new version of Avast (20 day trial) I have a message for my attention saying my firewall is not switched on.
However, whatever attempts I make to turn it on just ptompts the message 'unable to start firewall'.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
