Windows Firewall helps protect your computer by preventing unauthorized users from gaining access to your computer through the Internet or a network.

The Windows Firewall service runs as NT Authority\LocalService in a shared process. It shares an executable file with other services. If the Windows Firewall fails to load or initialize, the error is recorded into the Event Log. Windows 7 startup should proceed, but a message box is displayed informing you that the MpsSvc service has failed to start.
Windows Firewall will not start, if the following services are stopped or disabled:
1. Select your Windows 7 edition and Service Pack, and then click on the Download button below.
2. Save the RestoreWindowsFirewallWindows7.bat file to any folder on your hard drive.
3. Right-click the downloaded batch file and select Run as administrator.
4. Restart the computer to save changes.
Note. Make sure that the
mpssvc.dll file exists in the
%WinDir%\system32 folder. If this file is missing you can try to restore it from your Windows 7 installation media.
