Lost Windows Firewall

Hello,
I have been using comodo firewall. Yesterday there was an update that required uninstalling Comodo. I wanted to turn on Windows Firewall and it gave me an error.
Cliff notes, crashed computer trying to install comodo update, and Windows 7 Utimate 64-bit won't let me start the Windows' Firewall. Had to do a system image restore, still working on updating and setting my files up. But I need to know how to get WFirewall started. Thanks for any assistance

You got some error? Check in Windows Feautures,maybe it's disabbled. Also check the service,maybe it's stopped.

Hello StalkeR,
You were right. In Services it was disabled. I put it on Auto and then got it to run. Turned it back off. Going to try to attempt to get Comodo 5.3 upgrade to work again, without requiring a image restore. Thanks you for your time and assistance.
