Windows Firewall is not producing the alerts it should be. I'm getting no alerts at all
(Yes, it is switched to show alerts!)
Not that I really want them, but...
I found the audit warning in the event logs recurring many times -
"Windows Firewall was unable to notify the user that it blocked an application from accepting incoming connections on the network.
There are other alerts saying that - Windows Firewall is "marked as an interactive service. However, the system is configured to not allow interactive services. This service may not function properly."
I got the same message about the 'TrueVector Internet Monitor' while I had Zone Alarm running (which I had to uninstall because it wouldn't work). I was not getting alerts on that either.
I've found nothing on the KB about this, or on any of those MS forums.
Any pointers anyone?
