Keep getting notification to turn on Windows firewall

Go to solution Solved by AdvancedSetup,

Recommended Posts


I'm using Windows 11 and Malwarebytes to 4.5.34.

I keep getting Windows notifications that I need to turn on the Windows firewall.  When I go into the Windows Security Center settings, the firewall is turned on. So i asume that it on and that the notification is is not correct.

I have "Always register Malwarebytes in the Windows Security Center" turned on.

What  is needed to prevent this notification from appearing when firewal is turned on ?

Thank you for the logs @Navelpluiz

Give me a moment to review them.

I disabled "Launch Malwarebytesin the background when windows  starts up "

But this made the system start with a blue screen after the logon screen was presented and and error code " process terminated 0x800700B7"

I could not figure out how to fix this so i ended up in reverting to a previous restore point.

Now i can login again but there seems to be a lot of things that are not OK anymore

  • Windows store does not start.
  •  Lot of apps give this error : There is a problem with xxxx. Reinstall the app from its original install location or contact your administrator.
  • Please set registry key HKLM\Software\Microsoft\.NETFramework\InstallRoot to point to the .NET Framework install location

  •  there is now a "Account Unknown xxxxx " when i look in the security tab of the property settings of  C:

Seems like I made a big mess of it. 😭

last what i did was running a  SFC /SCAN NOW which found and repaired corrupted files.


what do you suggest ?  Continue with your fix or ....... ?

There must be something else going on. Since you do have a Restore Point and the FIX will also create a new Restore Point please go ahead and run the fix


Yes problably your right.

I will run the fix now.

BTW.  i like  the fixlist.txt script you prepared for me.  I can read and understand (90%) what it does but surely can't produce it.  THANKZ !!!

Overall the fix ran well, but the DISM command did have issues running. You should look at fixing this once we do a couple more scans.


Error: 0x800f081f

The source files could not be found.
Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log


Please see the following which should help you to correct this issue.


Using SFC and DISM to correct file corruption




For now, please run the following

Microsoft Safety Scanner

Please make sure you Exit out of any other program you might have open so that the sole task is to run the following scan.   
That goes especially for web browsers, make sure all are fully exited out of and messenger programs are exited and closed as well


Please set File Explorer to SHOW ALL folders, all files, including hidden ones.  Use OPTION ONE or TWO of this article



I suggest a new scan for viruses & other malware. This may take several hours, depending on the number of files on the system and the speed of the computer.

The Microsoft Safety Scanner is a free Microsoft stand-alone virus scanner that can be used to scan for & remove malware or potentially unwanted software from a system. 

The download links & the how-to-run-the tool are at this link at Microsoft 



Look on the Scan Options & select the FULL scan.

Then start the scan. Have lots of patience. It may take several hours.

  • Once you see it has started, take a long long break;  walk away.  Do not pay credence if you see some intermediate early flash messages on the screen display.  The only things that count are the End result at the end of the run.
  • The scan will take several hours.  Leave it alone. It will remove any other remaining threats as it goes along.  Take a very long break, do your normal personal errands .....just do not use the computer during this scan.

This is likely to run for many hours as previously mentioned  ( depending on the number of files on your machine & the speed of the hardware.)

The log is named MSERT.log  and the log will be at C:\Windows\debug\msert.log

Please attach that log with your next reply.


It is normal for the Microsoft Safety Scanner to show detections during the scan process.

It is scanning for basically all bread crumbs or traces of files and registry entries that "might" be or have been part of some infection or previous infection.

That DOES NOT mean the computer is infected. Once the scan has been completed it uploads the log to their Cloud service which then uses Artificial Intelligence to determine if in fact any of the traces are an infection or not.

Then it writes into the log on your computer what it found.


Thank you

if i click on the link  https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077.   it gets redirected to   https://www.bing.com/?ref=go&linkid=0

  from the SFC /SCANNOW  log i  extracted the info with " findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log > C:\sfclogs.txt" "

which has no errors .

 I will continue with with the rest of your instructions now.
