    Error 5 usually means Access Denied. Do you have any other firewall software
    on that computer, or have you made any configuration changes to it?

    I have this same issue with Windows Firewall exiting. I suspect something is
    wrong with my access permissions on the built in account used to start it,
    but I am not sure what it takes to check. I also just did a fresh install of
    Vista Enterprise on my machine and was surprised that this issue still

    Do you have any third-party firewall software or anything else installed that
    can cause this? I have a bunch of Vista systems of various flavors and have
    never seen this.

    no, nothing at all, I tried to see what happened when I start it using
    procmon it was not very helpful though. There were serveral Name not found
    results displayed for the svchost.exe, I'm not sure they are releated there
    are so many things associated with svchost.

    To be honest, I would recommend you call Microsoft support. They have a
    better ability to walk you through what is going on here. This seems like
    security-related support to me, so if you call (866) PC-Safety (in North
    America) they should help you for free.
