Perhaps the only thing that will help is to do a "repair re-install" of Windows. I suggest you read these instructions:

I tried a couple methods and nothing worked i tried (To install Windows Firewall, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
At the command prompt, type the following command line, and then press ENTER:
Rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection Ndi-Steelhead 132 %windir%\inf\netrass.inf
Restart Windows,
Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
Netsh firewall reset
Click Start, click Run, type firewall.cpl, and then press ENTER. In the
Windows Firewall dialog box, click On (recommended), and then click OK.) .I tried some other methods also and nothing ?
