  1. God bless you. I was able to restore the firewall on a friends computer and Microsoft Essentials was able to update as a result of your fixes…plus it didn’t take me all day by doing it manually.

  2. Restore Missing Base Filtering Engine Service (BFE) to Services MMC: I need this for WindowsXP, please.

  3. Thank you! I used solution 2 and it worked great, so easy! I just had to restart after the install was done. Thanks again.
