Windows 7: Firewall will not turn on whatsoever.

29 Oct 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium

Let's merge a missing Action Center key into the Registry:
Action Center Notification Icon =====> Unable to open HKLM\...\ShellServiceObjects\{F56F6FDD-AA9D-4618-A949-C1B91AF43B1A} key. The key does not exist.
Please open Notepad by pressing the Windows key and the R key at the same time.
In the Open area, type: notepad
Copy and paste all the text inside the code box below to Notepad:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
In Notepad, go to File > Save As
Save the file to: Desktop
Save the file as: fixac.reg
Save type as needs set to: All files

On the Desktop, double-click: fixac.reg
Confirm the prompt to merge to your Registry.
Click: OK

Restart the computer.

On the Desktop, right-click fixac.reg, and select: Delete

Also empty the Recycle Bin.

Check to see if you are still having problems, and, if so, post back on what they are.
