Abbas,

I am assuming you are running Windows XP, and the firewall is Microsoft
Windows Firewall. With that being said, here is the process to fix this:

1) log onto the Windows XP workstation as an administrator
2) Open up a command prompt and type the following "netsh winsock reset"
(without the quotes)

Reply back if that does not work for you.

Re: Firewall disabled
I also had the same problem after downloading and
installing Microsoft 'AntiSpyware'.
The only was I could get my windows firewall back was to
uninstall the antispyware and restore my XP to an earlier
date........ It works,,,, Linus

This problem seems very common. I am sure it is a bug and
it will be fixed. In the meantime, if you are running OS
XP restore your system to an earlier date before the MS
Spyware was installed. It should work just fine after this
is done.

.The same thing happened to my computer, it looks as
though Antispyware blocks the firewall because it becomes
unnecessary?

No--this is not the case at all. Antispyware does not eliminate the need
for the firewall, just as the Firewall does not eliminate the need for
antivirus--different tools for different threats.

If you are on Windows XP, Service Pack 2, please type this at a command
prompt:

netsh winsock reset

Hit enter
Then restart the machine.

Otherwise, please follow the steps in the following Microsoft Knowledge base
article:

After this procedure, you may need to install some third-party software that
adds itself to the Winsock LSP stack.
