Hi,
My firewall gives me this error message when i try to set it on.
"Windows cannot start the Windows Firewall service."
I have just installed SP1 but the problem started before that.

Thanks for the replies Bob and Jason.
The thing is that i get the error message from wherever i try to start the
firewall.

Try running this command in an elevated command prompt netsh winsock
reset
Reboot and then try enabling the firewall. This recently worked for me in
servicing a customers machine with the same problem.

Have you ever had a 3rd party firewall or security suite installed on this
computer?

That shouldn't cause any problem. Does the event log have any useful
information? Also, here's one article (that may or may not apply to your
issue).
