    BFE and WINDOWS FIREWALL problem

    Hi guys,

    i hava a problem with starting windows firewall on Win 8.1 64 bit, so i tried to manually modify BFE permissions to everyone in registry, but i have no access, it says: registry voice can't be overvritten. I tried tu go in servicies and start it on Auto but i got error 5 "acces denied". I tred scan with Malwarebytes and Avira and it was ok. I tried registry repair.exe wich fixes common registry errors and restores them to default. So i tried Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and i will attach the FRST TXT. I hope you can solve my problem and don't have to refresh my entire system. i did sfc/scannow and there were files who couldn't be fixed, so i have the cbs.log but it is 2.42Mb and i can't attach it.

    Not that familiar, others may opine.

    But does Avira have its own firewall which would effect the windows firewall ?

First off let me say that I'm a complete moron when it comes to firewall settings. I have no idea what I'm doing, haven't a clue about firewall "rules" and basically have to be directed. The only time I really messed with any firewall settings was YEARS ago when I was running the Look-n-Stop...
