Windows 7: Windows Firewall will not start

29 Oct 2011   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Think it had McAfee but I removed it as soon as I got the computer up and running. However, the firewall was running fine afterwards. So I don't know...

Well, I googled around and fixed that error and got a wall of text like I probably should (I ran "gpupdate /force"). And this is what I get in the wall of text:

Maybe it might give a bit of a clue now of what to do since I found the /force option to get all of this.

I see that you have Comodo installed ... did you install it as suggested above?
You will have to find the setting to allow Rosetta Stone to install and run on your computer.

Also, have you turned off UAC?

I've had the firewall installed for a while.

Again, the program requires Windows Firewall itself or it will not install. See here: Error 1722 Rosetta Stone Software - Windows Installer Package Error

(Edit: I can also confirm this as well back when I had Vista 32bit running on my other laptop. Had the firewall disabled since I was using Comodo, and after turning it back on, it would run. Now that computer no longer has Vista due to it being my linux computer [I like dabbling around with my geeky side]. I may have to see if it will run through WINE on it but I would still like to try and fix the issues on this one as this one is far more powerful and has the better graphics card to handle things easier. WF is pretty much the only thing I need to fix on this and it'll be good to go again)

UAC is turned on, have had no problems with it. Program requires admin powers to install.

Let's take a further look..

Download DDS from one of these links:
Mirror 1 Mirror 2 Mirror 3
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt <--- will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next post.
The scan will instruct you to post Attach.txt as an attachment.
