"Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Snap-in failed to load"

Newbie, fooling around with Home Premium, came across an option labeled,
"Windows Firewall with Advanced security" Upon activation, popup reads,
"Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Snap-in failed to load. Restart the
Windows Firewall Service on the computer that you are managing. Error code:
0x6D9"

Re: "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Snap-in failed to load"

this was not supposed to have been uploaded because I had not finished it! I
needed to research Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.

this will have to do, now:

what is meant by the advanced security? is this the 2-way firewall that
vista disables by default?

what is the snap-in, and how do I load it?

how do I research the error codes?

Re: "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Snap-in failed to load"

Windows Firewall with Advanced Security is for fine-tuning the firewall
settings for a specific need. You can create, delete, or disable "rules" for
what it blocks and what it doesn't.

In my opinion the options it provides should already be accessible or
"built-in" when you access Windows Firewall the normal way. This is another
attempt by Microsoft to "keep users from doing things they shouldn't" while
at the same time, making things more difficult for an administrator to
access.

As for why you experienced an error pulling it up, I haven't the slightest
idea.

Re: "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Snap-in failed to load"

i figured out how to do configure the advanced firewall settings, but now i
have another problem: firewall has turned itself off!

I subscribed to the 90-day trial ms onecare package.

the ms windows firewall seems to periodically, and without annunciation,
shut itself off: "windows firewall service is not running."

attempts to turn it on yield, "due to an unidentified problem, Windows
cannot display windows firewall settings"

it's set for "automatic upgrade," and automatic upgrade appears to be
functioning normally. yet, in an attempt to get it running by "kicking" it,
I pressed the manual upgrade button; this yielded, "Windows firewall
was unable to make the requested updates."

windows firewall has been problematical since the beginning (about 5-6 weeks
ago): i was on the phone with 2 ms techs for nearly 4 hours (countless
reboots) to have vista's "windows security center" recognize windows
firewall.

i recently downloaded, from RealNetwork Website, and installed - but never
actually used - Real Player. It was not until after i installed that i read
RealPlayer's eula. it says that "i agree" to have RealNetwork reconfigure my
firewall, open the udp port, install cookies from different companies
(Rhapsody, Mozilla, to name two), and certain other liberties (details elude
me at this moment).

thinking that there may be a connection between this instant windows
firewall incident and the RealPlayer bundled adware shenanigans, i
uninstalled RealPlayer (one day after i installed it) - notwithstanding that
windows firewall has, as i've said, ceased before.

do you think RealPlayer installed a piece of malware?

anyway, what can i do about getting windows firewall turned on? .... or
should i just disable windows firewall and uninstall the entire ms onecare
package? i've been told that packages consume a lot of resources and are,
pound-for-pound. significantly less effective than independent units. if you
recommend the latter strategy then please recommend products for the units:
antivirus, antispyware, registry cleaner, disk cleanup, disk defragmenter,
monitor for open ports, ...

Re: "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Snap-in failed to load"

it is not uncommon for virus/malware to turn the windows firewall off.
it could also be one care that is doing it.
you should do some thorough scans of your system for virus/malware.

Re: "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Snap-in failed to load"

You now have two separate threads going for this issue. I answered you
in your first thread. Please go back to that thread and stick with it so
people can help you properly instead of fragmenting the issue and making
more more for everyone (including yourself).

Re: "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Snap-in failed to load"

Here one solution that hasn't been mention, I had the exactly same firewall
problem with my Win7 and did not know anything about how to fix it but what I
did was go to "Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore"
and then went back a few days and restarted my pc and now it all working fine!


I suggest you try this simple fix first before messing around with your Windows system...
