You want to export the following registry key from a working PC to a file, then copy the .REG file to the non-working machine and import it.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BFE]

Why didn't you just ask that in
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Misc/Q_27988739.html ?

I would've attached these files there, instead.

Having UAC disabled is NOT recommended by anyone I'm aware of, by the way... that's likely a large contributor to the BFE service getting deleted, since merely going to a web page can make changes to your system with no chance to stop it, whether you have Norton installed or not. UAC is really no different than having to open a door to enter or leave a building... disabling it is like removing the door from your house; the lock on the door is analogous to user versus administration level accounts (with an administrator password the key to the lock).

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Save or Save As..  it anywhere you like. When it finishes, click Run... and if prompted, allow Regedit to import it (it should tell you when it's finished merging it into the registry). Then reboot, and BFE should be in the services.msc snapin... if it's not running already at that point, set its Startup type to Automatic and click Start.

Open Regedit, navigate to and right-click on
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BFE
choose Permissions

Click the Advanced button on the Permissions dialog.

In the Advanced dialog, go to the Owner tab and if the logged on user is not the 'Current owner' then click that username in the Change owner to box, check the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects box, then Apply to take ownership of it.

On the Permissions tab tell us what users are listed with Full Control in the Permission category.

The logged on user is shown in the Change owner to box on the Owner tab (which is between the Auditing and Effective Permissions tabs in the screen shot above).

The user "Acer" is the owner...  still, on the Owner tab, check the 'Replace owner... ' box at the bottom and click Apply, then go back to the Permissions tab and give Acer Full Control, with the 'Replace all child...' box checked, and click Apply again.  

After that, reboot, and the user Acer should be able to start the BFE service if it doesn't start automatically.

Click the 'start' orb, type in eventvwr.msc and hit Enter.
On the left, expand Windows Logs and click on System

In the middle, look for messages from the Service Control Manager that mention the BFE service and it should tell you why it won't start.

Usually the message[s] on Event Viewer's General tab will tell you in plain english what the problem is.

You should be able to click and swipe across the message[s] on the General tab, copy to clipboard with Ctrl+C then paste those messages into a comment here.

OK... there are still DACL problems.
Here's a site that should fix the specific problem you have with the BFE service if you follow its instructions step by step... it has screen shots with each step numbered; you should be able to start at step 3.

Selecting any of them isn't necessary... instead, just click the Advanced button (even if you already selected one).

If you checked the 6 boxes
(for
"Query Value"
"Set Value"
"Create Subkey"
"Enumerate Subkeys"
"Notify"
"Read Control"
)
the Base Filtering Engine service should start now if it's set to Automatic.
