    Hi
    On restarting the server the Microsoft Firewall (wspsrv.exe) fails (and
    therefore RRA also fails since it is dependant). I can log on and manually
    start it.
    I have rerun the ICW with no improvement.
    The system event log shows these two entries but otherwise is clean - but I
    did notice that the Microsoft ISA Server Control (on which Microsoft
    Firewall depends) started at 19:49:43 which is after the failure of
    Microsoft Firewall
    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Service Control Manager
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 7009
    Date: 21/11/2005
    Time: 19:48:41
    User: N/A
    Computer: MITWS
    Description:
    Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for the Microsoft Firewall service to
    connect.

    Description:
    The Microsoft Firewall service failed to start due to the following error:
    The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely
    fashion.

    This seems to have happened since installing WSUS and its hotfix KB898708.
    Any advice would be most welcome
    Thanks
    Theo

    Turned off compression on application files on IIS web sites (separate
    problem on Trend V3 console "choking") fix from Mariette which resolved
    Trend problem and apparently partially this one. Firewall now OK but ISA Job
    scheduler fails to start!
    Still need help please
    Thanks

    Tried running ICW again and then restarted; this time four services failed:
    ISA Server Control
    ISA Job Scheduler
    MS Firewall
    RRA
    Could somebody help me find the cause of this?
