win xp sp2 issues

  johnnyrocker 10:13 17 Jun 2005

afriend of mine has the following prob in that when he d/loads sp2 he is unable to enable the firewall (which i thought was automatic)when he tries to enable it in security section he gets an error 'firewall cannot be enabled because internet connection sharing is not running)
any ideas?

Could maybe see what the service is doing. Click Start, Run, services.msc and look for the Internet Connection Firwall/Sharing service and see whether it has started OK or not.
