    I have 8900 with BIS and my desktop manager keeps setting my firewall on my bb to locked to enabled.
    I can get rid of it but I have to do a factory reset and for what ever reason it enables it again when i sync it back to my bb to my DM.

    Anyone have any clues why?

    I uninstalled all my BB windows apps and reinstalled them from scratch.

    I can fix this for you but I am on WAP right now. You need to find a file on your PC called policy.bin and delete it. There is also registry wntry that points to policy.bin. You must delete that too.

    The file should be located at C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\policy.bin

    Open up Regedit (Start > Run and type regedit). Locate and delete the key HKEY_Current_Users\Software\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\PolicyManager\C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\policy.bin

    The PC is now clear and will not cause problems again.

    Search CrackBerry for CrackUtil http://forums.crackberry.com/f35/crackutil-85617/ download and install it. Now DO A BACKUP of your phone. Use CrackUtil to remove the IT Policy from your phone.

    When the phone comes back to life, it will be free of the Firewall lock but you may have to restore your data from the Backup.

    Pete 6 - Help
    Tried to clean the file as instructed but could only find the policy.bin file to delete. Cant fins the file pointing to it so expect the issue when I restore is due to that as the firewall remains locked. I am using XP. Appreciate any help or advice

    Thanks Ricky Rick
