We are working on a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine, and found that the Windows Firewall and BFE services are missing in services.msc. We've tried the following to get them back:
- Ran sfc /scannow
- Checked the registry permissions as directed here
. When we try to give permissions to the NT Service\BFE account, it says the account cannot be found.
- I found a tool called Tweaking.com Windows Repair that was recommended to fix this issue, but it appears to be for WIndows workstations rather than servers, so I don't know if that will fix this.
