    Tranlation: 'Can't start the Windows Firewall on yout Local computer. Consult the systemlogs for more information. If this is not a service of Microsoft, you have to contact the manufacturer of the service. Mention than the specific error 5.'

    I don't have a clue what the systemlogs are or what I can do with it, and I tried many solutions given on the internet but none has worked for me yet. Please help me with this awful error.

    In the search box next to Start button, type ser > press Enter.
    You are now on Services window > scroll down to Windows Firewall > click it.
    Under Status ................................. it should be Running.
    Under Startup type...................... it should be Automatic.
    If that is not what you see, left side, click Restart the service.
    Also right click at Windows Firewall > Properties ......................
    at Startup type, click the pointer and select Automatic
    at Service status, click Start.
    Click OK when done.

    See if the Firewall is back in action.

    I refer to my first post:

    And when I try to start the service in the "Services.msc" I get the error:

    Tranlation: 'Can't start the Windows Firewall on your Local computer. Consult the systemlogs for more information. If this is not a service of Microsoft, you have to contact the manufacturer of the service. Mention than the specific error 5.'
