Original title: Error 1068
I was attempting to install HP software on a windows 7 laptop. I received an error message that Windows Firewall has stopped running. I read through a million posts and nothing has helped. using command prompt, netsh winsock reset doesn't work (maybe that's just for Vista?) The value is set to 3. When I go to computer/manage/services and applications/services/windowsfirewall I get the error message 1068 dependency service or group failed to start. I did a system restore, uninstalled and reinstalled Norton. I am at a loss.
