Sorry this is kind of vague problem description but i dont know when or why this would have happen.
Its been like this for a while and Id like to fix it now.

But only thing i can say is i get this Message When trying to turn on my Windows firewall: http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/6114/34026720ls2.jpg
I dont even know where to start with fixing this.

Go to Start -> Run..., and type in

Go to the windows firewall service (should be close to the bottom)
Right click it, hit properties.
Set the dropdown box to "Automatic" and click the start button, as shown here once completed:

Then see if the error still occurs.
