Can Not Access Windows Firewall within Windows XP Pro SP2
Posted on 2007-08-08
I am needing to access Windows Firewall within Control Panel of Windows XP Pro SP2 for some troubleshooting purposes. However, each time I attempt to access it, I get the following error message: Windows Firewall Settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) Service?) . If I click Yes or No, nothing happens anyway.
Any thoughts or suggestions for correcting this problem so I can access my Windows Firewall within XP Pro SP2 will be greatly appreciated.
