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

Reboot Windows."
