  • Click Start - All Programs - Accessories - Right click Command Prompt and
    choose Run As Administrator. Type (or copy the below five lines and one
    blank line underneath and right click in the command prompt window and
    choose Paste). This will start its dependent services in the correct order.
     
    sc start DCOMLaunch
    sc start RpcSs
    sc start BFE
    sc start mpsdrv
    sc start MpsSvc
     
    If there are any error messages copy the results to the clipboard - right
    click anywhere in the command prompt window, choose Mark, then select your
    text, right click the title bar and choose Edit then Copy (or press enter
    while text is selected).

  • Sir, you must Download Microsoft Fix it here : http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_firewall_diagnostic/en-us

     

     it fixes...
    • Windows Firewall is not the default firewall
    • Windows Firewall does not start
    • Windows Vista could not start Windows Firewall. Service-specific error 5 (0x5)
    • Remote Assistance does not work
    • You cannot access shared files and printers

     

    Regards,

  • You then need to type
     
    sc start MpsSvc
     
    To actually start the firewall.

  • Really surprised me to see no-one start with a question, although MCP's are all trained to do this..

    The user has come back with an entirely different 'solution' to those launched into by our so-called professionals here, related directly to what was going on in his/her system at the time (in this case an update). Another example might be that some advice on stopping various other services to speed up XP 'for free' had just been followed - just fixed exactly this problem, with exactly the same error messages on another PC after a user had done this, simple by racking down the services menu and starting all the commonly running services.
