  • If you have 32 bit Vista download these 3 or 4 registry files (4 with Windows Defender) from the Public folder at
     
     
    Find Regedit in c:\windows, right click and choose Run As Administrator, then File menu, then Import, and import the various reg files.
     
    To configure and start Windows Firewall, Security Centre, and optionally Windows Defender
     
    Then Click Start - All Programs - Accessories - Right click Command Prompt and choose Run As Administrator. Type (or copy the below lines and one blank line underneath and right click in the command prompt window and choose Paste). This will start the dependent services in the correct order. Then turn it on once started.
     
    If you get an error message you can copy it by right clicking the window, choosing Mark, selecting the text, and press enter.
     
    sc start DCOMLaunch
    sc start RpcSs
    sc config BFE start= auto
    sc start BFE
    sc config mpsdrv start= auto
    sc start mpsdrv
    sc config mpssvc start= auto
    sc start MpsSvc
    netsh firewall set opmode enable
    sc config Winmgmt start= auto
    sc start Winmgmt
    sc config Wscsvc start= auto
    sc start wscsvc
    
     
    And for Windows Defender
     
    sc config WinDefend start= auto
    sc start WinDefend
