app store/ failed to install /enable windows firewall/ and retry/ error code 0x80246010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm growing really frustrated with this problem. I can't instal any app from windows store. no app updates either.  I get (after some time) installation failed error code: 0x80246007. App not installed Windows Firewall Service is not running. Enable and retry. (paraphrase). But I followed  links to repair which took me to msconfig services and went through the steps recommended but firewall resists starting and states it , I may not have this correct , is not configured or doesn't have permissions ? to run on the specified network. No wait, it says network configured on and the one I am trying to run it on are different. So I try to change them to match and it won't accept new network stating wrong parameters ??? Does any of this sound like it goes together?  here are some error codes encountered along the way:0x80246010 , 0x80073d0a, 0x800704022, 0x80070490(2014-12-24-T-11_06-38A) and 0x80246007. I was able to instal a recent update for defender but suspect other updates are not being run as there have not been any. I manually upgraded and downloader office 365 from my school source without any problems so far. But, no store access at all. Please help me resolve this. Thank you.
