guys.. help! i cant turn on the firewall... it said windows firewall setting cant be displayed because the associated service is not running.. and when i type yes.. it said i cant start the windows firewall..
Start>run>"services.msc" (without quotes).
Scroll down to Windows Firewall/Internet connection sharing.
Right click and make sure it has started.
Also right click and go properties and under start up type make sure its on auto.
The windows firewall isn't actually all that bad...but all it takes is a few disabled services and some dependancies being turned off that is causing your problem.
Can you post a screenshot of your services?
