Firewall is corrupt? Does not connect to the internet. Get the message "the firewall settings window cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running".

Original title: wall of fire is corrupt? Does not connect to internet

The "firewall settings window cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running" message, but then it won't access the internet or run the program. We have done all the steps listed here http://windowsxp.mvps.org/sharedaccess.htm, but nothing worked so far. Even re-installed SP3. Help, please! Thank you very much.

Hello

What happens if you disable the firewall?

Run the checker (sfc) system files on the computer.

SFC tool scans system files and replaces incorrect versions of system files by using the correct versions.

To run the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:

a. open an administrator command prompt. To do this, click Start, click principally made programs, Accessories, right-click Guest, and then click run as administrator.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

c. at the command prompt, type the following line and press ENTER:

sfc/scannow
