Windows firewall not start? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have windows 7 64-bit and i have installed Microsoft Security Essentails anti virus. My system windows firewalls not started. I have tried to start manually it gives me error

    'Windows could not start the windows firewall service on local computer.
    Error 1068: The dependency Service or group failed to start.'

    I also tried through Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Firewall and i got error

    'Windows Firewall cant change some of your setting.Error code 0x8007042c.'

    Can anyone have had the same problem and have the fix solution on to start windows firewall service.
