Yesterday my pc was formatted.

Today i started using internet as usual. After some 10 or 15 minutes, browser got hanged..then i clicked below on the computer icon(which is the internet) on the task bar.It was also hanged. So,I right clicked and opened network connections, from there also i cant able to disconnect the internet.

When i clicked change Windows Firewall settings, it says :

Windows Firewall cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) service ?

I clicked Yes.
Then it said ----- Could not start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service on Local Computer. Error 5: Access is denied

Im restarting pc for 10 or 15 minutes. Its more than annoying. I turned on Windows Firewall and turned off the firewall iam using.Now there is no problem.

Im using Comodo firewall. There is no problem in that firewall. I have used this firewall before my pc was formatted.
There is something which turns off the Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service within 10 or 15 mins if i use comodo firewall. I dont know what it is...

Anyone have any idea ?
