error 1075, firewall, restore point

March 15, 2006 at 18:12:51
Specs: Win XP SP2, P4/3.4 ghz/1GB ram

I have no restore points in my computer since my hard drive died, had to be replaced, and i reloaded windows and everything else. I can't create a restore point.

When I open security center I get the security center is currently unavailable because the security center service has not started or was stopped.

When I click on Windows firewall I get, "Windows firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the windows firewall internet connection sharing (ICS) service?" When I check yes I get "Windows cannot start the firewall ICS service."

If I go to services and double click on security center, set startup type to automatic and service status to start, I get: "Could not start the security center service on local omputer. Error 1075: the dependency service coes not exist or has been marked for deletion." I get the same response if I try to start Windows Firewall Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).

Any ideas?

Sounds like you have a bad install, dont do any administrator passwords or extra users on the initial install, these can be done later, if required.

Or, you can try a repair.
If you need to reinstall WindowsXP and want to keep all your current installed applications and settings:
1. Start WindowsXP
2. Go to the location of your source files
3. Run WINNT32 /unattend
For example, D:\I386\winnt32 /unattend ( copy & paste this command into the RUN box, then press ENTER ) Your computer will do the rest.
Or,
Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.
Copy & paste > D:\I386\winnt32 /unattend
Press Enter.
If you have i386 ( about 500mb ) on your hard drive, you can replace D: ( if D: is your cd drive ) with the location of it.

Here is another way, after trying the 1st.

Boot off of a clean Windows XP cd ( your bios has to be set to boot from cd rom 1st ) choose Install ( Not > To Repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R ) at the first prompt.
It will then search for a previous copy of Windows.
When it finds your copy, it will stop at the next prompt and ask if you want to do a repair. Hit R at this screen.
If it does'nt mention a repair > DO NOT continue.
It will then copy a lot of files and appear to be doing a reinstall ( But its not. All your programs and data are safe, all you will lose, are your Windows updates )
This will allow you to add accounts to the system that will be administrator accounts, it will also fix most problems in XP.

I am trying JohnW's winnt32 unattend reinstall. Once I figured there was a space before the last slash, I was able to get it going. Now I am stuck becuase it is asking me for Nvidia network bus installation disk #1. Of course I don't have anything called that so I stuck in the the nvidea video driver disk and clicked OK and nothing happens. I guess it can't find the driver. What would happen if I just click cancel? I am reluctant to do anything unusual in the middle of the install.

"Once I figured there was a space before the last slash"
That's why I said, Copy & Paste.

"Now I am stuck becuase it is asking me for Nvidia network bus installation disk #1"
Should have come with the motherboard cd.

If you don't have, hit Cancel, drivers can be added later.

JohnW,

thanks much. I already took the chance and canceled the NVIDIA bus thing. The desktop came up and asked me to include a disk for PhotoGallery and click OK. I don't have one so I canceled and get error 1706, no valid source installer cant continue. and I just keep cancelling out of that. Finally, everything stopped loading.

I can now create and use restore points, the security center comes up properly. The windows firewall is off because zone alarm is still running. All my other programs seem to be doing fine.

Only thing is, each time I log on I get that load photogallery thing. As far as I could find out, that is an item that will come with the new Windows Vista, so I don't know why it is coming up here. any ideas on if it is even possible to load or how I can stop the computer trying to load it everytime I turn it on.

In any case, thanks much. Your suggestion worked great.

PhotoGallery should be in your startups somewhere, do a Search ( Start > Search ) & it will show where it is. A right click of the PhotoGallery files it finds & select Properties, will show what program it belongs to.

Msconfig is probably needed as well.

The PhotoGallery turned out to be part of my HP 3in1 printer. I stuck in the HP disc and it loaded right up. I also stopped the HP items from started at startup using MSCONFIG. Looks like all systems are go. Thanks to all and hope this helps someone else.

Wonder if you can help me. I have been following this thread as I have the same problem with my firewall and ICS
When I run the command suggested
D:\I386\winnt32 /unattend

I get the following a popup with the error message
"Setup cannot continue because the version of Windows on your computer is newer than the version on the CD.

Warning: If you decide to delete the newer version of Windows that is currently installed on your computer, the files and settings cannot be recovered."

LukeL, that usually means you have SP2 installed, you need to make an updated CD with SP2 on, or use the next repair option.

Universal Windows Slipstreaming and Bootable CD Guide
http://www.msfn.org/articles.php?action=show&showarticle=49
A service pack is a product-specific collection of updates that fix security, program compatibility and system reliability issues. It also provides enhancements, administration tools, drivers and additional components that have been developed since the product's release. In short, a service pack helps to keep your product current and extends its functionality.
This guide will describe the easiest way possible to slipstream (also known as 'Integrate') a Service Pack into Windows 2000, XP or 2003. The days of typing out command switches, and fiddling with boot sectors and ISO settings in Nero are long gone, so none of that will be described here! :-)
To do this, we will only need one program - MSFN's very own popular nLite created by one of our members nuhi. While nLite is primarily aimed to remove components to slim down a Windows CD, it has the required tools to do just an automated Service Pack slipstream as well as create a CD image.

Yes I did update my Windows XP with SP2.
OK let me try your suggestions and get back to you. Not very PC savvy - so learning as I go about how to make boot CD's etc, and setting the bios
Found an option in my Windows XP SP2 update disk about it.
