Preferred Solution: Windows could not start windows firewall on local computer error code 5

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi guys,

It seems windows won't let me breath easy for long .

Problem description :
==================
I am unable to connect to wired or wireless internet, reason being, I think, is because windows firewall is not starting.
Not sure why this happened but I think its because of a false flash update which might have been a rogue program, ( rootkit kindof though NOT sure ). Also let me tell you that, I frequently use utorrent to download movies, just in case if that might be the root cause.

After going through tons of posts I thought of starting this thread which, I hope turns out to be of genuine help to others as well.

Hello:
 
I'm looking for some assistance. I have a Lenovo 8811 ThinkCentre desktop running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1; 2.13gig Intel Pentium Core2 with 3 MB memory.
 
This is my teenage son's computer. We are trying to set up workgroup to share files across wireless network (having difficulty there, but that is another story). I noticed Windows Firewall not operational. When attempting to turn on firewall and update settings, receive message that "Windows Firewall can't change some of your settings. Error code 0x8007042c."
 
We use Windows Essentials for virus protections. I tried some things I found researching, but it hasn't help. Updated Windows Firewall Authorization Driver Startup type to Demand and other things. Ran Malware, SuperAntiSpyware that found several trojans, adware, etc. Disenfected and reemoved but still can't start Windows Firewall.
 
I'm sure there are other issues with this machine, but not having working firewall scares me. My son tells me a "Dirty Install" will fix this. I don't know what that is?
 
Any help is appreciated to get the Firewall up and running. Please advise if you need additional details. Thanks in advance!

Windows Firewall will not start. Set to automatic, status "stopped". Click "start", get error code 5.

All Dependency Components are starting automatically at start-up except possibly Windows Firewall Authorization Driver. Unable to locate that driver.

Malware scanned and removed by Malwarebytes, SpeedMaxPc, Reimage, and Microsoft Security Essentials.

Norton Antivirus 2012 uninstalled; intalled Microsoft Security Essentials with option to start Windows Firewall on intallation; Windows Firewall start-up failed.

Used Microsoft "Fix-it", sfc /scannow, SpeedMaxPc, Reimage, and MSE to fix code 5; all failed. sfc /scannow says some corrupt files cannot be replaced, for more info see C:/windows/log/cbs/cbs.log
The other services say my system is safe in excellent operating condition.

Used Reimage to restore computer to an earlier state prior to problem; failed.

I am fairly certain the Windows Firewall Authorization Driver is either corrupt or missing. How do I nail this down? Or what exactly is the problem?

Hey guys,
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
I can not start Windows Firewall, Diagnostic Policy Service, Diagnostic Service Host, or Diagnostic System Host. When I try and start them manually in services.msc, it gives me Error Code 5: Access denied. Both BFE and Windows Firewall Authorization driver are running. I am logged in as an administrator, and I have already allowed full control of these services for the Administrator accounts and the user "SYSTEM" in Regedit. If you need more information, please let me know. This is my first post, so I don't know if there is any other information that you need. Thanks!

Use Diagnose and fix Windows firewall service problem automatically -

How to Flush DNS in Windows Using the Command Prompt

Step 1 ? Close all open web browsers and applications on your computer.

Step 2 ? Open the Windows command prompt by selecting the ?Start? menu and then go all programs, accessories, then right click command and run as admin.

Step 3 ? At the command prompt, enter ?ipconfig /flushdns? followed by pressing the ?enter? key. After a moment, Windows will display a message similar to: ?Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.? Once the message is displayed, the DNS will be flushed removing all incorrect entries.

Then , we want to get the IP reset, so, lets renew its settings and see if this also helps out :
you will type in the command box : ipconfig /release then enter, then next ipconfig /renew then enter, this will reset the IP , now restart and attempt to have it reconfigure its connections to your router. Post back results please.

A:Error Code 5. Firewall. Firewall does not start.

Do you have norton security installed?

If so it uses its own firewall, in which case you do not need windows firewall on. You should not run more then one firewall at a time.

I recently received the Windows 2012 security virus that hijacks your computer and refuses you to open programs. I've attempted to remove this by first using malware bytes and a fix registry that I've located within your forums (FixNCR). The first time I did this it seemed to clear up - but it returned. I followed the same process with a false sense of success and recently had the virus pop up again. I tried another process of running ComboFix (I did this before reading all of the forum rules) on newly created Windows user account. While attempting this, ComboFix noticed I had an active scanner of ESET NOD 32 - this AV software used to be installed on my computer, but when attempting to update the license I was unable to reinstall. Using ESET's very own software removal I thought I took it off my computer, and can still find no trace of it. I installed Avast (uninstalled shortly after) and am currently using AVG. ComboFix still ran even though it said that ESET was running. I have a log which I can post from this if you wish to see it. After ComboFix, and still in safe mode, I ran Malware bytes and SUPERAntiSpyware Free. I then ran CCleaner to attempt to fix all registry issues. While booting up again on my main Windows 7(64bit) user account I went to check out my Windows Firewall and received the Error Code 0x80070424.

Hey there.

I'm looking for some help regarding my registry keys for the windows firewall.
I can't start the windows firewall service. I've finally after some time spent trying to fix the BSE, been able to make the BSE running perfectly.

As stated my firewall doesn't work at this time.
I've made an ; sc query MpsSvc, which gave me the following values

Type : 20 WIN32_SHARE_PROCESS
State : 1 Stopped
Win32_exit_code : 1066 (0x42a)
Checkpoint : 0x0
wait_hint : 0x0

In my registry database i can't seem to find:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy

.. and in my devices (incl. hidden) i can't seem to find:
Windows Firewall Authorisation Driver

Under Shared access i've only got "EPOCH".

I've attached both my registry keys for MPSSVC and BFE

Hope to get some good responses, and I really hope to be able to fix this issue with some of your guidance, without having to either refresh, reset og reinstall windows 8 (:

Thanks in advance

Sorry if this is in the wrong place or if I give insufficient info... I'll try to be as descriptive as possible...

My wife got a virus today on our desktop computer. We are running Wondows 7 Professional. She ran the AVG scan and it found the following and placed it in the vault: Win32.Tepfer.kp

She then could not get her printer to work. I was trying to get the printer up and running and noticed that it was not shared on our network. When I tried to share it, I got an error code 0x000006d9. When I googled this it led me to try and get my windows firewall fixed. When I tried to enable the Firewall, I kept getting the following error code "0x80070424 windows cannot change some of your settings". I then googled this and I tried to follow the instructions on several sites, which told me to look in "services" from the Run menu. When I went to the services folder, Windows Firewall was not in the list for me to right click and perform some operations. I am at a complete loss as to where to turn next.... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps somebody could be so generous and tell me what I could do about this?

Hi everyone, 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!*Moderator Edit: Moved topic from AntiVirus, Firewall and Privacy Products and Protection Methods to the more appropriate forum. ~ Queen-Evie*
