    When I try to start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing the
    following error appears:
    Could not start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
    service on Local computer. Error 170: The requested resource is in use.

    Routing and Remote Access has not been started.

    I did have a anti-virus software but it was removed.

  4. Hello snazzy,

    Check if all of this services are running, if not start it:
    1. Remote Procedure call (RPC)
    2. Windows Managegement Instrumentation
    3. Eventlog
    4. Network connections

    Also reset Winsock by running the following command
    from a command prompt: "netsh winsock reset" (without the quotes).

    Best regards
