    The error message "Windows Firewall can't change some of your settings. Error code 0x80070424" will pop up when you try to change the Windows Firewall settings. In the meantime, when you restart the system, it might pop up an error saying that "Base Filtering Engine Service" could not be found in the system.

    FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO SOLVE THIS ERROR

    1. Download the registry files (You can also export HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\servic es\BFE from another working Win7 PC)
    or you can download from below links :-

    http://blogs.technet.com/cfs-file.as...677.mpssvc.reg


    2. Launch and import them to registry

    3. Restart your PC

    4. Now,open RUN and type

    5. regedit and click ok

    6. go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\servic es\BFE

    7. Right click on it-permissions

    8. Click on ADD and type

    9. Everyone and click ok

    10. Now Click on Everyone

    11. Below you have permission for users

    12. Select full control and click ok

    13. Now,open RUN and type services.msc and click ok

    14. start base filtering engine service and then windows firewall service

    Good luck

    hi, i had the same exact issue and i followed all the steps and when i went to run the windows firewall an error message came up saying... Windows could not start the windows firewall on local computer. For more information, review the System Log Event. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to server-specific error code 5.

    Please if you know anything else, help me out! been trying to fix this for quite some time now. Thanks
