Hello, I am having problems with my Windows Firewall. It shows that it is off (although I go to sites where there are popups and they get blocked). I go to my Windows Security Center and go to the Firewall Center. I try to turn it on and it gives the following message:

Windows Firewall Settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the Internet Connection Firewall (ICF)/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service?

I click yes and it says that it cannot turn on the ICF/ICS.

What can I do to fix this problem?

It seems as though it started after the last Windows Update got downloaded onto my computer.

Thanks a lot!
