Unable to open service SharedAccess for writing on local computer Error 5 Access Denied
Posted on 2008-09-30
We have a Windows Server Enterprise SP1 server. When attempting to change the startup for the Windows Firewall service to Automatic or Manual the following error is recieved.
Unable to open service SharedAccess for writing on local computer. Error 5: Access Denied.
Tried looking online for some references on this issue found a reg hack to reset the SharedAcess registry key however, the hack was for Windows XP SP2 and not Windows Server 2003 SP1.
