Windows Firewall was never installed (by design since I have NEVER used it inn20 or so years and had it disabled) and I need to install it w/o re-installing the O/S.
Everything I have read about re-installing doesn't work since I believe those procedures go under the assumption it was originally there in the 1st place;
Is the "service' available as a download, or does someone have a working solution?
(Please no comments on removing the service in the 1st place. Had I know that prevents file/folder sharing I wouldn't of).
The following didn't work;
"All those commands should be launched in an elevated command prompt.
Step 1: Recreate the service
Rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection Ndi-Steelhead 132 %windir%\inf\netrass.inf
Step 2: Start the service
sc start mpssvc
Step 3: Reset the firewall configurations
netsh advfirewall reset netsh advfirewall set domainprofile state on netsh advfirewall set privateprofile state on
Step 4: Reboot
