I recently upgraded my operating system from Windows XP Home edition to XP Professional. I disabled the firewall for an unrelated task, but now I cannot re-enable the firewall. When I check the box to do so, I get the following message: An error occurred while Internet Connection Sharing was being enabled. The dependency service or group failed to start."
