Windows Firewall Error code 0x80070424
I found the post for the above problem, via google.
Windows XP SP3
Using Microsoft Security Essentials as the anti-virus
Two days ago, my daughter got the XPanti-spyware2012 on her computer
Scanned it last night with Spy-Bot Search and destroy 1.6.2, in Safe Mode with Networking, and had her fix all problems found. The problem was still there.
I booted this morning into Safe Mode with networking and preformed the Spy Bot updates. I stopped the scan as soon as it detected 2 problems. Fixed those, and re-started the scan. It found a total of 32 bad things. Fixed those and XPspyware2012 appears to be gone.
Re-enabled Microsoft Security Essentials. It told me that the Automatic updates were not enabled. After attempting to enable that, it said to try going to the control panel, and enable that way. After attempting that way, it came back with the error above [Error
I just attempted to manually run the windows updates, and it again returned the same error code. [Error number: 0x80070424
PS. i just discovered that Internet Explorer has been disabled/removed!
