Windows 7 Firewall Error Code 0x80070424
Posted 07 December 2011 - 01:33 AM
I am new to this forum I signed up to see if anyone could help me troubleshoot this problem I have with the firewall settings.
One of my family member's laptop has been infected with the fake antivirus called Win 7 antivirus 2012 and I followed a Tut. I found online
to get rid of it. I was finally able to stop it from executing and had appeared to have taken it off with rogue killer and malwarebytes.
But I still have a problem with the firewall, I used the firewall settings through McAfee but every time i turn it on it turns off within seconds.
I tried to turn it on in Windows Firewall settings but it gives me an error code 0x80070424. I even went into the services to see if i could some how enable it there
but i don't even see the service I believe it has been deleted by some kind of Trojan, I don't know I'd appreciate the help please.
