How can I change the group policy to turn on Windows firewall?

I’m trying to help a friend who had a Kaspersky antivirus suite installed, but it expired last week, so we uninstalled it and installed Avira free antivirus.

She is running Windows XP Home service pack 3, and a security alert appeared saying that the firewall was not on. When I tried to turn it on, that button was grayed out and there was a notice at the top saying that certain settings were controlled by a group policy for out protection. How can I change that?
