Firewall error code 0x80070424 & error code 0x6D9

I got an alert stating my firewall is turned off, i tried to turn in on but i was unable to because of error code 0x6D9, i tried updating my firewall settings but it says i have error code 0x80070424. THEN i read somewhere here to change windows firewall to automatic in services as admin but i couldn't even find the windows firewall in the list to change it. I also tried multiple virus, malware, security scans such as System Mechanic, Mcafee, and luck...Thx in advance, hope you can help me.
