hey i recently had some malware (search engine hijacker) which you guys helped me exorcise( :thumbsup: )
ive been having a problem with windows firewall failing to start
I went to the process and checked dependencies and i found its a problem with the Windows Firewall Authorization Driver being Missing
I tried manually copying the driver into its correct folder from a free file download website
and got an error message `this driver has been prevented from loading`
I also tried freeware dllfixer called dllsuite which didn`t even find the problem.
I also tried using Zonealarm free firewall, it slowed my computer down to a crawl for 2 days and never actually turned on.
However, my pc was malware infested when i tried these fixes.
(ps. yes, my grammar and punctuation skills do seem to work only at random intervals)
