    The Windows Firewall service terminated with service-specific error 13 (0xD). (cannot start firewall)

    What does this mean guys

    I can't start the windows firewall service, and this is what I see in event
    viewer:

    "The Windows Firewall service terminated with service-specific error 13
    (0xD)."


    WF.MSC returns: "The Windows Firewall with Advanced Security snap-in failed
    to load. Restart the Windows Firewall service on the computer that you are
    managing. Error code: 0x6D9.

    This bloody god damn error codes are so useless! I mean why give me an error
    code, why not just translate the meaning !

    I believe all other relevant services are up and running - someone, please,
    help!

    Hello Amster,

    Other folks may have additional ideas for you; hope this helps a bit, take
    a look at this

    Security Center

    <http://www.blackviper.com/WinVista/Services/Security_Center.htm>
    Look for Dependencies: What service Security Center needs to function
    properly:


    Black Viper's Windows Vista SP1 Service Configurations

    <http://www.blackviper.com/WinVista/servicecfg.htm>
    see if that helps:


    Other than that, I'm about out of ideas, so good luck with it.

    Let us know maybe someone else can conjure up something else to try.

    Good luck
