Unable to Turn on Windows Firewall- error code 0x80070422

Hello,

 

This is the first time I see that the windows firewall is turned off and when I try to turn on from the action centre it shows as below; then when I click on manual settings it shows as the second screen.

 

I did try to install the HP updates however it still shows a red alert in security status, see below.

 

Currently using the Quick heal Total security and it is valid for 3 years.

 

HP ENVY 4 Notebook PC - Operating system: Windows 7 Home Basic 64-bit Service Pack 1

 

Please advice how to fix this issue, thanks.

Hi, 

 

    As you are having trouble in turning on firewall please find the below steps to resolve this issue.

 

Perform the following steps and install the automatic updates and then try enabling the firewall.

 Run an online scan to check any viruses or any malicious software:
