Fixing Windows® 7 Firewall Errors
Are you having issues with Windows® 7 Firewall errors? Learn how to fix them.
Windows 7 is the latest operating system from Microsoft. Compared to other operating systems, it provides some extra features as well. The commonly shown firewall errors are code 0x6D9, 0x80070422, 0x8007042c, 0x8007005 (access is denied) and more. Most of the errors are shown, when we install new software or uninstall the installed software. Sometimes it shows the message "Can't turn on" when the Firewall is prevented to open as an error. Most of the issues can be solved by reformatting the operating system, Windows 7 and also by accessing the security center as an administrator.
Given below are some common Windows 7 Firewall errors:
- Access is denied error
- Can't turn on error
- Security center error
Access is denied error
When you try to install new software, sometimes it may show the error code, "Error 0x8007005". If you are trying to download files through the software like torrent or some other downloading software, then the error shown can be "Error opening Windows firewall: 0×8007005 Access is denied". To resolve the issue, you can uninstall the installed software and reinstall it. Another way to solve this issue is, just close the software and come to the firewall, check whether it is deleted or not, and then reload that software.
Can’t turn on firewall error
Commonly, this error is shown when you install Windows 7, for it has some problem with the firewall and it prompts that firewall is not turned on and also the recommended settings. If you click the message displayed, the error shows like this "Windows firewall cannot change your settings error code 0x80070422". If you turn on the defender, it still remains the same. You can solve this issue through an antivirus like Norton or MacAfee.
When the Internet connection is not connected in the system, sometimes the error shows "Fire wall is turned off". If you try to turn on the firewall, it shows security center error. You can solve this issue completely by going to the Windows Firewall and change the start up type settings to 'Automatic'. After that you can go to the control panel and turn on the firewall. If the firewall doesn’t work, then you can opt for full service scan and adjust the settings through the Microsoft official site.
