    Windows Firewall Error 1060, Unable To Start


    Hi,

    I recently got a virus (not sure which one) that disabled both my Windows Firewall and Windows Defender. I've done virus scans with AVG and ESET and after removing some trojans they are reporting the computer is clean. I also used Windows Malicious Software Removal tool, and it found no viruses.

    With the computer cleaned I proceeded to follow the instructions given in this Solved Unable to start Windows Firewall - Page 2 - Windows 7 Forums (Specific instructions shown in quotes below).

    I was able to start the BFE service after adding it to the registry without any problems but when I attempt to start the Windows Firewall service I get an error that states that it "could not start Windows Firewall on Local Computer". I queried the Windows Firewall service and get Error 1060.

    If anyone knows how to fix this error please let me know.

    Cheers

    Download both the registry files

    bfe.reg

    firewall.reg

    Launch and import them to registry

    Restart your PC

    Now,open RUN and type

    regedit and click ok

    go to

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BFE

    Right click on it-permissions

    Click on ADD and type

    Everyone and click ok

    Now Click on Everyone

    Below you have permission for users

    Select full control and click ok

    Now,open RUN and type

    services.msc and click ok

    start base filtering engine service and then windows firewall service
    And:

    Click Start, Run and type Services.msc
    Right-click the Network Connections entry
    Set its Startup type to Manual
    Click Start to start the service
    Right-click Windows Management Instrumentation
    Set its Startup type to Automatic
    Click Start to start the service.

    Would you open a command prompt ant type:

    sc query MpsSvc

    Post the results.

    Could you check the permissions on the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy

    Post here.

    Also, can you check the following driver:

    1. Select winkey + R
    2. Type devmgmt.msc
    3. Select View/Show Hidden Devices
    4. Select Non-Plug and Play Drivers
    5. Right click Windows Firewall Authorisation Driver
    6. Check the status and report

    It's also worth running a sfc /scannow for a command prompt

    Clean install Windows after a low-level format of the drive.

    That registry entry doesn't exist on my system, and I'm unable to find the Firewall Authorization Driver.

    Clean install Windows after a low-level format of the drive.
    I'd rather try to fix it before starting from scratch. Last time it took me a week to get things running the way I like them again.

    Anytime malware has corrupted a system, the only way to ensure your privacy, security and stability is to low-level format. Nobody at all could ever deem the machine malware free from this point on without low level format. There simply is no way to know what the malware has done at all.

    Anything less and there is a significant risk the malware will return all on its own - especially the type that knows how to disable services.

    So unfortunately, I am unwilling to offer any other advice than what I've given.

    Killdisk is excellent to low-level format and Clonezilla is excellent to make images to restore from (after llf) in the case of a similar event happening.

    Do you have anything under:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess

    Can you also check:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MpsSvc
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BFE

    It may be worth exporting all three keys, zipping them and attaching the zip to a post.

    Finally, can you:

    1. Open and Administrative command prompt
    2. Type verifier /query > c:\drv.txt
    3. Add the drv.txt to the zip file.

    Under shared access I only have an entry called Epoch.

    BFE and MpsSvc are there. I've zipped all of them and attached them with the drv file.

    Really think it's an unwise choice to not follow my advice, but by all means, of course you're welcome to continue with your choice here.

    Even if you find a way to fix your firewall, your machine for 100% fact is highly unstable at this moment how it stands. <<< Not only is that true, it's a major clue to what is stopping the firewall from starting in the first place. 3rd party junk.

    Either that, or the malware actually uninstalled the service or deleted files necessary for the service to start.

    Without low level format to guarantee clean HDD and then clean install of Windows, this current install is doomed to be plagued, and will cause so many more problems then its worth.
