OK, I am about to lose my mind.  I have tried every solution suggest to restory my Win 7 Firewall after removing the FBI virus.

This is one of the fixes I tried BUT WHEN I FINISHED AND  TRIED TO START BSE & MpsSvc I got the message in BSE (ERROR 5)  and in windows firewall services (error 1068)  PLEASE HELP AND EXPLAIN IT LIKE YOU ARE EXPLAINING IT TO A 10 YEAR OLD AS EVERYTHING ELSE HAS FAILED.  I EVEN TRIED THE Mr Fixit and it said it was fixed but IT WAS NOT??????????? 

Make sure that PC is clean(free from zero access rootkitbefore trying this fixes)
This firewall issue is commonly found on vista and windows 7 (64

Download both the registry files

Launch them and click YES when you get a UAC prompt
Restart your PC

go to


Right click on it-permissions

You may also be missing security center windows defender ,BITS and windows update services

I gave this a shot and it WORKED. Repaired my Firewall perfectly.
