Unable to turn on Windows Firewall on Windows 7

Hi experts,

 My Windows Security Center Service is turned off on my laptop. When I try to turn it on I get an Action Center pop up window with this message:
The Windows Secuity Center Service can't be turn on.

How do I resolve this?

Check if the service is started: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2519899
If your machine has a third party firewall installed (e.g. Symantec Endpoint Protection, or others), then the third party firewall takes control and does not allow the Windows Firewall to be turned on.
