So, of course, when i installed SP2, ALL of my portforwarding got messed up, and my ip suddenly changed. So now all those things i used to do, hosting games in Warcraft III, using torrents, all that jazz, suddenly doesnt work.
Im going to assume that SP2 reactivated my windows firewall, thus interfering, but heres the problem. when i try to access the firewall, i get this error:
Start > control panel > Windows firewall: Then i get the error: "Windows firewall cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall/Internet connection sharing (ICS) service?"
so i hit yes
"Windows canot start the windows firewall/internet connection sharing (ICS) service."
So, i really am at a standstill, and i have no clue what to do about this. But, being a big gamer, not having the option of hosting games is kind of crippling me...So, help would be very appreciated!
