Original Title: Cannot Start Windows Firewall Service: Error Code 13
So anyway, Action Center started randomly telling me that Windows Firewall is turned off. When I try to turn it on or restore to default settings, it tells me it is unable to do so.
I went to Services, and Windows Firewall is set to Automatic, but it is not started. I try to start it and it tells me it is unable to do that as well. The error code is 13.
I am an Administrator.
MalwareBytes did find and remove a virus with the name of "Disable.SecurityCenter" but after removing that I am still unable to start the Service.
Can anyone help with this problem?
Edit: The log ID is 7024 and the description is:
"The Windows Firewall service terminated with service-specific error The data is invalid..".
