XP Firewall/ICS not working

Recommended Posts

It has taken a long time to get here, a lot of trial and error. I hope I haven't screwed things up even more.

My daughter purchased a new laptop about a year ago and the old one was given to me last week. It is an HP/Compaq Presario V5000 running Windows XP SP3.

Turns out it cannot connect to the internet or my home network (Verizon FIOS). This is true with LAN and WLAN.

The task bar displays a Firewall Disabled warning.

When I click on the Windows Firewall icon in the Security Center I receive the following message:


"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?"   When I click YES I receive another message:


"Windows cannot start the WIndows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) Service"


I have tried numerous "Solution Resolved" for this issue from various sites and forums to no avail! Frustration s setting in.


Prior to coming here I have run MWB, SuperAntiSpyware as well as others.


I found your forum and downloaded Farbar Recovery Scan Tool. Unfortunately it was after I ran several other programs (Security Check, AdwareCleaner and RogueKiller - in that order).


Attached are the logs from each run.


I don't know if I have a virus, missing DLL files or bad hardware (although the descriptions for the network and wireless cards indicate they are running properly).


Any suggestions would be appreciated.
