Re: Windows Firewall not working due to Windows Firewall / Internet
Connection Sharing (ICS) service not working.

Soon after installing the beta version of Microsoft’s AntiSpyware software,
the Security Center prompted me that my Firewall was not enabled. When I
click on “Recommendations� it takes met to a window that prompts me to
“enable the firewall.� When I click on the “Enable� button, it indicates
that “We’re sorry. The Security Center could not turn on Windows Firewall.
To try turning on the firewall yourself, go to Windows Firewall in Control
Panel. In the Windows Firewall dialog General tab, select On (recommended),
and then click OK.

When I go to the Control Panel and click on Windows Firewall, I am prompted
with a message that indicates, “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?� Once I click
the “Yes� button it indicates that, “Windows cannot start the Windows
Firewall / Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service.�

To try to manually start ICS, I right-clicked on “My Computer� and selected
“Manage�. Then I went to “Services and Applications�, “Services�, and
clicked on Start for the “Windows Firewall / Internet Connection Sharing
(ICS) service� The error message that I get after that is, “Could not start
the Windows Firewall / Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service on Local
Computer. Error 10047: An address incompatible with the requested protocol
was used�

Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Thank you,

I believe this problem can be solved by going to

Start>Run> cmd [enter] and type

netsh winsock reset [enter]

Follow prompts and reboot. Remember that this program is *beta*. Please

Hi

Sometimes netsh winsock reset doesn't fix it.

In that case, try this one:

I had the same problem-winsock reset fixed it.

Fixes described in Microsoft KB892199 did not have any effect, although it
is written specifically to address the same symptoms.
