When i try to turn my windows firewall on the following message appears:

Windows firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated server is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall/Internet connection sharing (ICS) service?

Yes/No

I click yes and the following occurs:

Windows cannot start the windows firewall/internet connection sharing (ICS) service

Please help

Thank you

Hi there, it may be because one of the LSPs were removed by mistake. Did you have a spyware problem recently and use a spyware remover like Microsoft Antispyware?

Take a look at this site for more information. See if that will fix up the problem.
