Hello all! Since yesterday morning, I've had an error with the Firewall not turning back on. The day before, it was on, and working fine! I haven't installed anything since, except we had a new router installed because our old one had the wrong charger to it. The new one worked fine the day we got it installed, but then the next morning I got this error. Could that be it? I don't have any anti-virus installed, so I don't believe it's a firewall alternative issue. I've tried various methods on fixing this, including trying to turn it on manually, only to be answered with error messages. I've tried: going into services to turn it on that way, but it says "Starting" and then I'm answered with the error message below command prompt sfc/scannow, it stops at 20% and says "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation." updating to windows 10, it won't even do that! restarting my computer, uninstalling anything I've downloaded in the recent week, and tech support. My laptop has been way slower than usual since yesterday morning, too. It took me 3 tries to write this thread without google chrome crashing, which it never has before. This has taken a lot of patience, and I really hope I can get some help with this. Thank you!
