My sons computer is 4 months old and he can not connect to the internet or get any of the firewalls to work. Keep getting an error code 0x80070424, any help would be greatly appreciated, it is windows 7

Well, the good news is that no firewall is needed if there is no internet access.

See if Error 0x80070424 ocurs when you use Windows Update, Microsoft Update, or Windows Firewall helps.

You apparently have PMs turned off, so I'll tell you here that I deleted the link from your signature. Not sure why your signature displays, as usually a member needs more posts, but I think that the link is inappropriate.

[Inappropriate remark deleted by mod] I was just wanting help with a computer related problem, and yeah I guess if the internet does not work I would not need the firewall, Thanks for the help..................

Did the Microsoft KB article help? If so, partially or completely?
