Presume he does not have another firewall which locks windows out ? what does it say in the security centre . Personally he'd be better off with a freebie like Zone alarm than windows one

Even if you have another Firewall you should be able to run Windows Firewall as well.

So maybe still got a few bugs about.

Assuming your son's pc has got rid of its malware ? Maybe the Windows Firewall service was turned off by the malware and may need restarting?

Click Start, then Run, type services.msc and click OK, scroll down the services list to Windows Firewall and see if it shows Status as Started and Startup type as Automatic?
