Cannot start windows firewall service
I cannot start the windows firewall service.
At first it did not appear on the services .msc list, so I followed balon's advice to add it to the registry in this older thread Unable to start Windows Firewall
Now the firewall service is in the list but when I try to start it, I keep getting an error message:
Windows could not start the Windows Firewall on Local Computer. For more information review the System Event Log. If this is a non-microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 5.
