Recently, many customers reported the Windows Firewall issue. This seemed to be caused by a wide spread malicious application.
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.
Please note that the same error code could pop up when you try doing anything in Windows Defender.
Download the registry files (You can also export HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BFE from another working Win7 PC)1055.BFE.reg
Launch and import them to registryRestart your PCNow,open RUN and typeregedit and click okgo to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BFERight click on it-permissionsClick on ADD and typeEveryone and click okNow Click on EveryoneBelow you have permission for usersSelect full control and click okNow,open RUN and type services.msc and click okstart base filtering engine service and then windows firewall service Good luck
Note:Modifying REGISTRY settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of REGISTRY settings can be solved. Modifications of these settings are at your own risk...

Thank you. you are champion B-)
Thanks, works perfectly on Windows 7 (I only applied permissions to BFE). Looking at another Win7 registry, the Everyone permission isn't there, so maybe we should remove it after starting the services?
Thanks for the tip!!
