Author, teacher, and talk show host Robert McMillen shows you how to turn the firewall on or off in Windows 10


  1. hi robert, after thousands of tricks to eliminate connecting and disconnecting of wifi issue in my HP notebook laptop win 10, by turning off firewall, the speed is blazing and connecting/disconnecting issue is very less!! should i turn off firewall *forever*(antivirus bit defender on)

  2. My firewall was turned off the whole time and on Team Fortress 2 it still says "Update Queued" and when I press play It goes to a screen that says content servers unreachable. Also all the pages on steam except for Library says " Error Code: -130"

    Help Please ;-;

  3. In Windows Advanced Security (window's default list of firewall rules), there are a lot of inbound and outbound rules that are by default 'allowed', but disabled. Should disabled connections that are allowed or not, become active at all, for example when a related program to a rule requests them?

    Also, windows firewall set up for incoming rules such as 'block connections that are not on the list of allowed' does not differentiate between disabled or enabled. I would have thought being disabled, any rule would be ignored and therefore allowed, but I don't know about becoming active on their own. Outgoing connections that are allowed but disabled seem to connect anyway (rule for outgoing is 'block connections that are not allowed by a window firewall rule')

  4. i ave windows 10 and im trying to downlaod something but it says that it has a malware but i know it dont. i do this and still says ive done soemthign before but i forgot how

  5. So I recently got my laptop with Windows 10 and I downloaded Norton security to protect it, I had to uninstall McAfee to download it and I think it turned off my fire wall. When I go to turn it back on it won't let me click on the sentence which says turn firewall off or on, what do I do?

  6. My firewall is off. There is absolutely nothing to click to turn it on no matter what I do. So, now what? Is windows firewall seperate from McAffee? I mean, shouldn't I be able to turn the windows firewall on without buying McAffee?
