Recently had a virus infection and noticed that the windows firewall service is missing. When trying to reset to recommended settings by using control panel received error code 0x80070424. Cannot access other computers or shared files/folders on home network. Saw a previous post dated 12-17 that appears to be the same problem.

Hey I am having the same problem except that my McAfee firewall will not stay on. So I tried to use my windows firewall as a back up and I am getting the same error code. I also had a couple viruses that McAfee apparently fixed.
