    The windows firewall is not starting when Xp loads. When I try to start it manually from the Windows Firewall/ Internet Connection sharing service I get the message: could not start windows firewall/ ics on local computer. Error 123: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
    I am also unable to use any realtime antivirus software right now since they too are not starting up.
