Windows 7: Group policy grayed out, firewall off


17 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium
 
 

Thank you for the info, MavMin.

You are working onn your son's laptop, and I am not sure whether it is Windows 7, or what it is.
Don't know if the info that shows under your name is your computer, or your son's.

Can you please post the heading for FSS, and xxx out any personal info/name, if you like. It provides some details that are important.
Example (from mine):

Farbar Service Scanner Version: 16-01-2013
Ran by xxxxx (administrator) on 17-01-2013 at 16:30:31
Running from "C:\Users\xxxxx\Desktop"
Windows 7 Home Premium (X64)
Boot Mode: Normal

Just want to make sure I post the right fix for your son's system


Thanks!

At the program's console...

Go to the Step 4 tab, and, under System Restore click on: Create

Unfortunately, the net start commands resulted in access denied. Running Tweaking now. Thanks for everyone's help. This is very exasperating!

The Repair Windows Firewall option should restore the Registry keys for the BFE and MPSSVC services, as well as the Shared Access service.

Let's hope it works.

If not, still have another approach we can try.
