Default Re: can't start windows firewall

To confirm that required services are running:

Start services.msc
Start > Run > services.msc

Check the following services and settings:

Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing: Startup type - Automatic
confirm that the Status is Started - if not, start the service
Network Connections: Startup type - Manual
confirm that the Status is Started - if not, start the service
Remote Procedure Call: Startup type - Automatic
confirm that the Status is Started - if not, start the service
Windows Management Instrumentation: Startup type - Automatic
confirm that the Status is Started - if not, start the service
If you have to Start a service, be sure to click the OK button after starting.

Reference:
Black Viper: Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing

mjnc, back in post #9 he stated that he did go and check all his services via BlackViper that I linked to in post #3, so that's been done.

I saw that but I thought the response was a little vague, and there was no mention of Network Connections or Windows Management Instrumentation.

My post was just to make it easier to confirm that all of the listed required services were properly set, according to BlackViper's information.

Fair enough. I assumed that he altered the services that didn't match to the BlackViper recommendations but perhaps I assumed too much.

Yes, you're right.
I get a little compulsive sometimes.
I think the info. posted was correct.
You'll probably agree that no harm was done.
