    Getting Error code 0x8007042c: "Windows Firewall can't change some of your settings" while trying to Turn on the Firewall with Recommended setting

    I am using windows 7 32-bit version. I navigated to Control Panel and then to Windows Firewall. Actually it was Turned Off. I tried to Turn it on with Recommended setting. There was an option there “Update your Firewall setting” and “Use Recommended setting” but When I clicked on it, windows 7 flashed an error “Windows Firewall can’t change some of your settings” with an error code 0x8007042c. What should I do to solve this error?
