This previous *thread hasn't been updated for almost three years, yet I now
have a problem accessing Windows firewall with 'error 1068' popping up
stating that Windows Firewall/ICS service can't be started. In Services,
Windows Management Instrumentation status is blank and startup type is
automatic. Windows Firewall/ICS status is also blank and startup type is
automatic and neither can be changed.

The command prompt 'cmd /k sc qc sharedaccess' is as displayed:

[SC] GetServiceConfig SUCCESS

SERVICE_NAME: sharedaccess
TYPE : 20 WIN32_SHARE_PROCESS
START_TYPE : 2 AUTO_START
ERROR_CONTROL : 1 NORMAL
BINARY_PATH_NAME : C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs
LOAD_ORDER_GROUP :
TAG : 0
DISPLAY_NAME : Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing
(ICS)

DEPENDENCIES : Netman
: WinMgmt
SERVICE_START_NAME : LocalSystem


I'm not sure what to do from here, but hope this helps anyone who has an
answer.

Thanks!!!

Make sure that "Network Connections" and "Windows Management
Instrumentation" Services are started/running. If not, tell us what happens
when starting those two services. Any error messages?
