    I'd like to tell what happened to me with the same err code for Firewall. I uninstall mcfee antivirus, even that no success, in the service system stoped some resources and the windows broke down and restored itself. But I noticed in the service system that some codes of mcfee was there again.
    So after unistalling mcfee, I used their tool called MCRP and everything got in peace again. I updated the programs that weren't possible and the Defender is my one and only antivirus now.
