    Hoping one of you geniuses can help me out.

    I'm running 32 bit Vista Ultimate with Service Pack One.

    I have a problem that is driving me batty. When I open Windows
    security center and try to turn on Windows Firewall I get a message
    stating:

    "Windows Security Center can't turn on Windows Firewall."

    I attempt to turn on Windows Firewall manually but get the message:

    "Windows cannot start the Windows Firewall service."

    As per advice I saw on another thread on this forum (i believe) I
    opened a command prompt as an administrator and ran "SFC /scannow"
    several times. Each time I get the message:

    "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix
    some of them."

    In the log it looks like two files are corrupted (I have attached the
    entire log).

    They appear to me to be:

    2009-06-30 15:55:09, Info CSI 000000ff [SR] Could
    not reproject corrupted file
    [ml:520{260},l:46{23}]"\??\C:\Windows\System32"\[l:18{9}]"mscms.dll";
    source file in store is also corrupted
    2009-06-30 15:55:10, Info CSI 00000100 Repair
    results created:


    and

    2009-06-30 15:56:42, Info CSI 00000153 [SR] Could
    not reproject corrupted file
    [ml:520{260},l:58{29}]"\??\C:\Windows\System32\en-US"\[l:28{14}]"ikeext.dll.mui";
    source file in store is also corrupted
    2009-06-30 15:56:44, Info CSI 00000154 Repair
    results created:

    Finally this may be related. When I run services.msc as an
    administrator and attempt to start the base filtering engine service i
    get the following error:

    Windows could not start the Base Filtering Engine service on Local
    Computer.

    Error 15100: The resource loader failed to find MUI file.

    I hope I provided enough info. Just ask for more.

    Thanks so much!! Cant wait to get this fixed.

    BFE Service is required for the Firewall to start.

    Start - All Programs - Accessories - Right Click Command Prompt - run as
    Admin

    sfc /scannow

    That's what I suspected. When I run "sfc /scannow" as an admin I get
    the message:

    "Windows Resource Protection found currupt files but was unable to fix
    some of them."

    I attached the CBS.log

    Thanks, I did this.

    When I attempted to start both IKEEXT and Base Filtering Engine
    services, they gave me two different errors:

    Base Filtering Engine gives:

    "Error 15100: The resource loader failed to find MUI file."

    IKEEXT gives:

    "Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start."

    IKEEXT also says "Failed to Read Description. Error Code: 15100"

    "Error 1086: The dependency service or group failed to start."

    I googled both the errors but could not find a solution. I'm hoping
    some experts here can help.

    Thanks!!

    I do have a Vista disc. Does Startup repair delete all my
    programs/files?

    I used startup repair (the first link) and it said no problems were
    found. (Problem still exists)

    Trying the repair disk from the second link now.

    OK, created the repair cd from the second link. That didn't work
    either. The repair option reported that there was "nothing to repair."


    I have heard that another option my be an "upgrade install" of Vista.
    Neither the disk from the "How-To Geek" nor my Vista installation CD
    have this option. Is it perhaps because I have Vista SP 1 installed.

    Sheesh! How do I fix these (likely) corrupted files? :mad:

    Thanks for all the help!

    You probably haven't got any 'corrupt' system files.
    I've found the ' SFC /scannow ' command often returns wrong information.
    Also you have run a repair which found no problems.
    If you have antivirus software installed that may be crippling your Windows firewall.
