Windows Vista Firewall Error in Logger?


Recommended Posts


In the Logger I'm getting this error message:

[2009-03-04 12:46:50] Error opening Windows firewall: 0x80070005 Access is denied.

I'm on a dial up modem connection at the moment (no router).

The box in Windows Vista Firewall for uTorrent is checked.

Why I'm getting this error message and how can I fix it?

Thanks in advance for any feedback,

You can ignore it.

I think to fix it, you can do that: enable Win Firewall, remove the previous exceptions about uT, start uT, Win FW will add new rules, disable it.

......in Windows Vista you can right click the application and then choose "Run as Administrator" or you can configure it that it always will run with Administrator privileges by doing this:

Right click uTorrent then Properties then Compatibility and the check the box:

"Run this program as an administrator"

Sorry, but I don't know what to do if you are running XP.......
