Windows Server 2008 R2 - Windows Firewall Service will not start RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 - Windows Firewall Service will not start.

     

    The server is not a domain controller and is not a member of a domain, just a workgroup. It's throwing a 7024 error:

    The Windows Firewall service terminated with service-specific error Access is denied..

    I've read through several tech notes and have not found an answer.

    When I try to start the service, I get:

    Windows could not start the Windows Firewall on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 5.
