Firewall with SP2 problem

  1. Hi guys

    I've got a bit of a problem with my firewall after installing all the windows updates online.

    If i go to control panel>network and internet connections> and then click on windows firewall i get this message "Due to an unidentified problem, Windows cannot display windows firewall settings".

    If i got to my internet connection rightclick>properties>advanced i have no option to turn on or turn off the firewall. My only option is "settings" and clicking on that gets me the exact same message as above.

    Can anyone help me with this probelm as this firewall dilema is preventing some programs from running correctly.

    Google has a number of "solutions" for this problem,of which the most likely is to replace the "Shared access key".See HERE
