Windows 8 Firewall problem

I have windows defender 8 on my laptop. From time to time I access the Action Centre to check everything is enabled ok.  When clicking on the firewall status it would not open & said not responding.  I'm worried that the firewall has become disabled.  Any ideas? Thanks

 

[Moved from feedback]

Any error code?
Have you recently made any change in Windows?
Windows Defender working properly?
Windows Update working properly?
If the Firewall got disabled then Action Center should have notified about that. What is the status of Firewall in Action Center?
Please come back with the results.
