Windows firewall service will not start
Problem: Windows firewall service will not start giving error code 6801
Note: This was originally found and fixed on a Vista x64 computer.
Open a "run as administrator" command prompt.
Go to "c:\windows\system32\config\TxR" (or the equivalent location on your PC)
- run "attrib –H –S *" to make all hidden files in the directory visible.
- run "del *.blf"
- run "del *.regtrans-ms"
- reboot the machine
