Run services.msc and check if your Windows firewall service is started and set to automatic.

If the above doesn't work, try this Microsoft Fix it: Diagnose and fix Windows Firewall service problems automatically

Quote:
Automatically repair Windows Firewall problems, such as Windows fails to start Windows Firewall service (0x5) or Windows remote assistance is not working.

What it fixes...
  • Windows Firewall is not the default firewall
  • Windows Firewall does not start
  • Windows Vista could not start Windows Firewall. Service-specific error 5 (0x5)
  • Remote Assistance does not work
  • You cannot access shared files and printers
