  • Err... WF.exe !? I suggest you first scan your machine for malware using a good anti-virus and an anti-spy.


    Next Ensure that RPC Service AND Windows Firewall Services are started and set on automatic. You also have to ensure that the Windows Firewall Authorization Driver is running properly.
