I removed Win 7 Antivrus 2011, from my win 7 ultimate x64 machine.

It appears like I removed the virus successfully but can not re-enable the firewall.

I get this "Windows Firewall Can't change some of your settings, Problem Error 0x8007042c " dialog box.

I have been digging around and the firewall service is missing, the file itself has gone missing.

I tried to run scf /scannow but scf is not recognized as an executable no matter what I try.

Not sure where to look next, it appears a fair number of people have bumped into this issue.

Moved from Win 7 to Am I Infected.
