Hey all, I hope someone can help me out with this.

Well, lately i havent been able to play games online. So i went to see what was wrong with my firewall. I went to my control panel, clicked Security Center, and then clicked on Windows Firewall. But i cant get in my Firewall settings. It keeps telling me:
Quote
"Windows Firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service?"

So i press yes and it shows that its starting. But then it comes up that
Quote
"Windows cannot start the Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service".

So i went to my control panel, administrative tools and i went to my services. I tried to start it manually, by going to propreties and clicking start. But another error pops up, saying
Quote
"Could not start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service on Local Computer. Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start."

Can someone help me out with this?
Thanks in advance,
Sean Moreau
