Get this "Error code 0x8007042c" when i try to open my firewall.

I am trying to let a programs though my firewall, But when i get to the page it says this.
Update you Firewall settings.
"Windows firewall is not using recommended settings to protect your computer."

When i hit "Use recommended settings" this is what i get.
"Windows firewall can't change some of your settings. Error code 0x8007042c

I have a anti-virus system and i have no virus/malware in my computer. Is there anyway to fix this?

Thanks,
-Warnerm14

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

You will find that in Speccy, you can select info from the display
using your mouse/touchpad and then paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.
