I have Windows XP SP2, it seems my windows firewall has been disabled. When I try to go to the firewall settings for my network connection, it says "Windows firewall settings cannot be displayed since Windows Firewall / Internet connection sharing service is not running. Do you want to start it?" When I click yes, it says that it cannot start the service. This doesn't seem to be an uncommon problem as I have found a lot of people having the same problem on other forums but none of the solutions mentioned works for me. Anybody here have a fix for this?

start-->run-->type services.mscsee if windows firewall service is set to automatic startup .. right click go to properties-->dependencies u can see that firewall service depends on network connections service as well as wmi service so make sure both are set to automatic startup ..
