Usually teh Windows Security Center will warn you telling that it is blocked, and if you would like to unblock it or block it etc.

Yeah - it will ask whether you want to Unblock it. You can go into Firewall control and unblock it yourself too.

But you shouldn't experience many problems without it on for a short time.
