So I've had windows 7 recovery virus earlier in the day and I removed it using the guide that was here in these forums/site. I unhid all the files/icons and removed the virus completely however I have a issue...

Something wasnt right I felt, so I went and checked different parts of my computer in control panel and I noticed that the Fire Wall was off.

So it said to click here to use recommended settings which I did however a error message popped up:

"Windows Firewall cant change some of your settings.

Error Code 0x80070424"

So I checked online to see if there was a solution however I could not find one but a result of it according to some sites was that it could of been a result of the cleaning of the virus via a third party software (malware bytes or etc).

I also checked the services to see if I can activate Windows Fire Wall but it wasnt even there...

So I am wondering now what I should do? Please help me.

P.S. Windows Security Service Center isnt working either...

Hi

To be on safer side before running registry fixes i would suggest you to

Download

http://www.snapfiles.com/get/erunt.html

Install it and backup your registry to C:/Windows/erdnt

Now Download both the registry files

http://www.mediafire.com/?317ea53a883288d

http://www.mediafire.com/?z6aw8j7997qa7j9

Launch and import them to registry

If it opens as a notepad,right click on them

Click on OPEN WITH

Click on BROWSE

navigate to C:/WINDOWS and select REGEDIT and click ok

Now you should get a UAC prompt,click YES

Restart your PC

Now,open RUN and type

regedit and click ok

go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BFE

Right click on it-permissions

Click on ADD and type

Everyone and click ok

Now Click on Everyone

Below you have permission for users

Select full control and click ok

Now,open RUN and type

services.msc and click ok

start base filtering engine service and then windows firewall service

Regarding security center service,i need to know if its 32 or 64 bit OS

Good luck
