Windows Firewall does not turn on
Posted on 2008-10-20
My laptop's windows firewall does not turn on. At the control panel>Windows Firewall it says: The windows firewall service is not running and below it it says: Windows firewall is not using the recommended settings to protect your computer. If I go to services and starts the Windows Firewall service (MpsSvc), a pop-up error will say: Windows could not start the Windows Firewall on Local computer blah blah blah.. refer to specific-error code 87.
If I go to the System event viewer this is what it's reporting:
The Windows Firewall service terminated with service-specific errot 87 (0x57)
Event ID: 7024
