Cant turn on/update Windows Firewall error 0x8007042c

Hello there!
It seems i have some sort of a firewall problem.

It says Action Center cant turn on Windows firewall, do this manually but when i try Use recommended settings, i get this error...

Could anyone tell me how i can fix this?

Is some service not working properly? (Action Control Center)
I've already run Free NOD32 online scanner and tried to fix it with Windows Repair tool but no luck.
