I have been using WIN7/64BIT on my latest laptop for about 2 years....about 6 months ago I began to experience sluggish performance so I decided to unhook my Zone Alarm Firewall and switched to the Windows Firewall product instead as I thought it would/should be more compatible with Windows.....recently I discovered that something has happened to the Firewall settings and I am unable to access the firewall (which may or may not be functioning). When I try to reset it back I get the following error code --- 0X80070424. I have tried numerous tools from MS and Malwarebytes --- I run avast! anti-virus. Some of the tools grt to completion with no positive change; a few don't run completely.

Has anyone experienced or heard about this? Searching Google yielded a lot of suggestions but nothing seems to make a difference ----- says there is a rootkit virus:

Charlie I just installed Win 7 and the only way I can get my PC to even work now is in Safe Mode with Networking! I have been having trouble for a few months with it so computer shopping. Have you tried restoring it back to before you installed that program or have you figured out what caused your problem?

Hi Nuccia,

I have not been able to restore my Windows Firewall.....I don't know what caused the problem initially......a while back I de-installed Zone Alarm becuase of "sluggish performance" and I also replaced AVG anti-Virus with Avast due to incompatibility with Firebird.....I don't know what caused the problem with Windows Firewall and have not been able to restore it. I have tried numerous recommended fixes I found online but nothing has restored the Firewall. Another recommendation was to re-install WIN7/64Bit but I am reluctant to try that. Right now I am running (with my fingers crossed) without having a Firewall.

I'm sorry to hear that - I think Win7 for all it's hype is quirky. One wrong program or driver and the whole thing crashes. Maybe you can take it in to Best Buy or Future Shop and have them fix it? I know everyone priced me about 100 bucks to reinstall the operating system and at least they guarantee it. One thing I learned - before installing or downloading any new program create a restore point for these such things. Oh and see if an update happened right after your install. I found that some updates screwed with my programs. Uninstall the updates and it may work again.

I purchased this on the suggestion of PCWorld. It has been great in repairing my Win7.

Certainly worth the try. About every other month i run this program to keep things straight. Sometimes other programs mess up your system files and this seems to fix them.
