Error: "Windows cannot start the windows firewall/internet connection sharing (ICS) service.

On my Eee PC under XP Home edition tablet, I get the error "Windows cannot start the windows firewall/internet connection sharing (ICS) service" when I try to access my firewall. I also can't connect to my router Wireless Lan to go on the internet. This may be due to some viruses that have been deleted using Microsoft Security Essentials.But the problem persists. Could recharge SP2 solve this problem or am I condemned to reload the operating system?

  • Disabled all incoming in the Windows Firewall, internet connections still work

    I have disabled all inbound connections in windows firewall, but not noticed any problem with my internet connection. Weird how? For example, I let Internet Explore establish outbound connections, but do not allow for it or any other service/program to receive incoming connections. But Internet Explorer still gets responses from the servers on the internet when the requesting State pages and I also get a response from the DNS server of my ISP when IE tries to resolve ips domains. Weird. I misunderstood the meaning of incoming connections or there is a huge security hole in windows firewall.

    Hi Semjon,

    This setting blocks all unsolicited attempts to connect to your computer. Use this setting when you need maximum protection for your computer, for example when you connect to a public network in a hotel or airport, or when a computer worm spreads on the Internet. With this setting, you are not notified when Windows Firewall blocks programs, and programs on the Exceptions list are ignored.

    When you select block all incoming connections, you can still view most Web pages, send and receive electronic mail and send and receive instant messages.

    For more information please visit the link below.

    I hope this helps!

  • Windows Firewall/Internet connection problems

    Recently, a problem came with my Windows Firewall. I don't know what caused the change, but I'll be surfing the internet very well, when a small bubble appears in my task bar that says: "your computer may be at risk. No firewall is turned on. "This has happened in the past, but when I clicked on the bubble to check before, my firewall is activated, so I simply rejected it. However, just a couple of days I noticed that when this bubble came, my internet connection would fail temporarily. So, when I saw the notice again once my firewall was not turned on, I checked. It seems that Windows Firewall turns itself off tension. I have no idea why he would do this. I manually turned it on again several times, but still it does.

    I run Windows XP Media Center Edition and (to my knowledge) have all the service packs/updates.


    Well, I asked a friend gifted in computer science, he suggests Spybot. I downloaded spybot, scanned my computer and found a Windows Firewall security override in my registry. Deleted Spybot, and now all is well again. This is a very quick and easy solution.

    I can do the most sophisticated malware cleaning below to another date, when it is more convenient for me.

  • LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 parameter error and cannot start the primary database

    I was getting errors in my RMAN backup script. I took a glance on the database settings. Looks like I made a mistake when I was in the LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 setting in the standby database. Instead of putting on the eve I put it in the name of the primary instance. I also noticed that the LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 setting has been changed in the primary database where I put it first. I guess he's changed when I changed the sleep setting. I have two questions:

    (1) can the parameter LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 be changes for the correct setting now that I set it wrong. The reason why I ask is because when I tried to change by using the following ALTER SYSTEM command I got an error saying something about conflicting attributes. I guess it's because the name of the primary instance has been upgraded with the DB_UNIQUE_NAME instead of the name of the standby instance. If I could change the LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 setting to sleep first then maybe I can change the primary to the correct setting? Please provide markets.


    (2) the second question is you can start a database using a spfile? (I use ASM and Data Guard) I ask because while I was connected to the primary database I executed the following command:


    I then stop the database and try to start but it won't start because it says to conflicting attributes. I don't create a pfile from spfile file before you shut down the database. (I'm bad). How can I change the setting for the primary database to start over. (The PFILE file is different in ASM. There are sub + DATA but has only a single line indicating where is the location of the SPFILE) I need to run the following RMAN RESTORE CONTROLFILE FROM backup AUTOMATIC;

    Please help as it is a production environment that was supposed to be delivered only yesterday.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance.

  • Windows 7 Internet connection sharing unique question.

    Hi I'm looking for help here.

    I have a unique configuration that I used on Windows XP for a long time.
    but I can't make it work on windows 7.

    Here's the Setup program.

    Main link: USB WIFI Dongle.
    is the one I want to share

    an Ethernet connection. go to a WRT - 54G router.

    The connection would be shared on the router. so, all of the devices in my house can also get internet.

    But in windows 7, I am unable to do this.

    On Windows XP, I just had to click Network Setup Wizard.
    He would ask what your primary was (my USB key) and then secondary (my ethernet cable)

    But it's not working on windows 7...

    Thanks for any help.

    I actually use an almost identical installation at the present time;

    3G dongle > XP box > router/AP access > network

    I also had a Windows 7 implemented under the node of the ICS without problem - I'll have to see if I remember how to do it.

    Select the Dongle adapter in network connections - right click and select Properties

    On the sharing tab, put a checkmark in the box "allow other network users...". ", and then select any wired network is connected to the incoming router ethernet port.

    Make sure that the router is set to IP and mask

    .. ... who should be.

  • Internet connection sharing: "Bluetooth network connection" does not appear in the list "Home Networking connection."


    With Windows 7, I want to share the network connection Wi - Fi with Bluetooth through PAN (Personal Area Network).

    When there are several connections in addition to Bluetooth after opening "Share" tab, I see these connections in the "Home Networking connection" list, but there is no Bluetooth. Then, when there is no connection in addition to Bluetooth which I can share with, there is no tab "share."

    Equipment: laptop Samsung NB30:

    • Broadcom BCM2070 Bluetooth 3.0 + HS USB Device with the driver PAN ('Bluetooth device (Personal Area Network)") provided by Samsung: Microsoft, version 6.1.7600.16385, 21.06.2006

    As I assume there should be means to somehow add "Bluetooth Network Connection" to a list of connections that can be internet shared with.

    Also, when I tried to fix this problem manually, other questions are raised:

    • There is really no Thoubleshooting guide for Internet connection sharing in Windows 7? I see this document on the site "Microsoft Support" for Windows 98SE, Windows XP - but not Vista and 7.
    • When I'm stuck to the administration of the system to the GUI, there is good decision to guarantee a target with the CLI. After searching a command line installation Internet connection sharing, I see no guides for this - only something like . Is there really no way to set up ICS by command line and I'm forced to use complex GUIs?

    So, please help me solve problem BT PAN ICS. But if you reply to other questions, it will also be interesting to read.

    Hi LeoniusLeonius,

    Here are a few articles using Windows Internet connection sharing (ICS) you can do refers to.

    Using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing)

    Set up a shared Internet connection using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing)

    Change the settings for ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) Internet

    Sharing an Internet connection between multiple computers

    Change which computer on your network connects to the Internet

    See if one of the articles will help you in fixing the issue.

    Any sharing via command line for internet connection, unfortunately there is no command available to do.

    Hope that answers your query.
