when trying to turn on firewall getting message windows cannot start Firewall/Internet Connection sharing ICS service. Am useing xp sp2 and have tried turning it on via control panel and services.msc. My virus checker is Sophos Anti virus which is updated daily.

are you using any other software firewall?because some firewall software stops windows firewall from running.

If you are running Windows One care that uses Windows Firewall,And wont let you turn it on in Control panel.
