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:
