Every time I try to open up Windows Firewall and modfiy something, Windows gives me an error saying:
"Windows Firewall can't change some of your settings.
Error code 0x080070424"
I've already looked up and tried a few things in an attempt to fix this myself. Apparently this error is caused by some sort of malware being installed on my computer. I have AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2012 installed on my computer, and I did a scan with it on my computer. It got 4 pieces of infected things off of my computer. You can see the exported overview here.
I also ran step 1 on this Microsoft support site and had the program scan my computer. Nothing was found, but Windows Firewall still wouldn't open. So, I moved on to step 2, opened up the Services program, and Windows Firewall wasn't there.
I'm not entirely sure if there's anything else I should be posting here right now, and if there is, I'm sorry. But anything that would help me get Windows Firewall working again would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
