So firstly, I'm using Windows. My computer got infected by Win 7 Security 2012 rogue virus. I removed the virus with the instruction on bleepingcomputer. I think I removed the virus, but I cannot go onto the firewall. When I go to windows firewall, everything is disabled and thus not able to enable the firewall. So when I click 'Use recommended settings' it says that Windows firewall can't change some of your settings, Errorcode 0x80070424.

The error code you've listed relates to Windows Update. Are you having any issue's with WU?

Yes, because when I try to install updates, it fails and shows the error code 80246007 Windows Update encountered an unknown error.

Run this tool.. Microsoft Fix It in aggressive mode. Restart after.

Can you list any errors in red from the event log?

Restart your computer once more to make sure the settings are correct.

2. Type the following command, sfc /scannow

To determine which files could not be repaired by the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:

3. Open an elevated command prompt. Copy the following command > press Enter:

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

**Note The Sfcdetails.txt file contains details from every time that the System File Checker tool has been run on the computer. The file includes information about files that were not repaired by the System File Checker tool. Verify the date and time entries to determine the problem files that were found the last time that you ran the System File Checker tool. Type sfcdetails.txt in Search programs and files and press Enter.

Paste the sfcdetails.txt into your next post.


Step 2. Download MiniToolBox. Check the following..
