My apology for the delay.

Please use Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit (MBAR)
Download >

Save to the Desktop
Double-click the downloaded file to run the program.

Follow the instructions to update and press: Next

Press Scan to allow the program to check your computer for threats.

If no threats are found, please stop here.

If threats are found, click the Cleanup button to remove them, and reboot if prompted to do so.
Wait while the system shuts down and the cleanup process is performed.

Perform a second scan to verify that no threats remain.
If they do, click Cleanup once again, and repeat the process.

When done, please post the two logs produced: mbar-log.txt and system-log.txt
(The logs are found in the MBAR folder located on the Desktop)

Also run fixdamage
Open the mbar folder and double-click on its file for the program will launch.

Press the Y key on your keyboard for the program to perform any necessary fixes.
When finished, press any key to exit, and the fixdamage screen to close.

Please restart your computer for changes to go into effect.

Since the WMI is associated with the Firewall, please verify if WMI is consistent by running the following command at an elevated Command Prompt (right-click and select: Run as Administrator):

winmgmt /verifyrepository
If it says WMI repository is consistent, we are OK.

My apology for the delay.
Absolutely no problem :)

I've attached the two files. WMI repository was consistent and MBAR found no threats.

Please download RestoreBFE.exe

Double click on the downloaded file.
It should only take a few seconds to run.
When complete, it shows: Done! Please check if BFE service is running now...

Any luck?

Also, let's see what this shows...

Please download Security Check:

Double-click: SecurityCheck.exe
Follow the onscreen instructions inside the black box.

When done, a Notepad report opens automatically, called: checkup.txt

What happens if you temporarily disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware programs, so they don't interfere with the running of: RestoreBFE.exe
You can find instructions how to disable your security applications here:

Another approach:

Please download the following file and save to the Desktop:


Now double-click on the BFE.reg file.
A prompt appears asking if you want to merge the information contained in the file into the Registry.
Confirm the prompt to merge to your Registry.
Click: OK

Now, reboot.

Next, please go to Start > Search programs and files, and type regedit
  • Right-click on regedit.exe and select: Run as administrator
  • Navigate to the following key:
  • Right-click Policy and select: Permissions...
  • Click: Advanced
  • Under Permissions tab click: Add...
  • A window pops up, copy and paste the following in the Enter the object box: NT SERVICE\BFE
  • Click OK.
  • A new window pops up, check the following boxes under Allow and click OK:
    • Query Value
    • Set Value
    • Create Subkey
    • Enumerate Subkeys
    • Notify
    • Read control
Click OK to all the open windows, restart the computer, and see if it worked.

No joy.

Please download the following file and save to the Desktop:

Interestingly, when I searched for regedit the attached error popped up.

When I followed the filepath I was able to run as administrator. But there was still no BFE.

New link for BFE.reg >

Did you merge the BFE.reg into the Registry.

When done reboot?

Follow Post 17 regedit instructions, and still no BFE?
