Firewall in "normal" mode prevents connection to internet

After a recent update check I was unable to connect to the internet.  After checking modem, etc I found that the problem was F secures Firewall protection which was set to "normal"  When I reset it to "Allow All" connection was ok.

    Hi lampwick,

    Thanks for your post.

    May I know which F-Secure program you are using? This situation is often due to conflicting software or firewall. Kindly make sure that you have no other security or firewall program is running.

    Thanks.

  • I am using F Secures Internet Security 2011.  I do not have any other security program on the computer.  I did activate Windows 7 Firewall.

    Hi lampwick,

     

    I have moved this post to Protection board.

     

    Please try to turn Off the Windows Firerwall then change the F-Secure Firewall profile back to "Normal". You should not be having both Firewalls On at the same time.

     

    Thanks.

  • I only turned on the windows firewall after I had to turn off F Secures Fire Wall.  I tried turning the computer on  and off a couple of times and the problem with F Secure fire wall persisted
