Win 7 32bit has no firewall

I have a user with a win7 home premium and all of a sudden could not share his printers.
I could remove the share but could not re-share it. I keep getting a 0X000006d9 error code.

When I looked this up is tells me his fire wall is not on.....OK lets turn it on.

I go to firewall in control panel and it will not let me turn it on...

OK, So I went into services to put it on automatic and start the service but it is not here?

Wow???? what do I do now???

Make sure that any and all malware on the computer has been eradiciated. Once you've done that, create a system restore point, then try out this article to download and get the files and registry entries that you need:

Take a look at this article, first - http://experts-exchange.com/A_6550.html

Also see the comments below that (there's a link to a specific comment at the end of the article, which will show you other symptoms to look for that might not be immediately apparent), regarding the missing Base Filtering Engine service.
