Try this.

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.

Thanks
Fury

EDIT: Then reboot.

"Windows Management Instrumentation" needs to be turned on.

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?
