    After removing malware from my computer, I am unable to start my windows firewall(the malware disabled and broke it, it seems). I get the error code 0x8007042c when trying to start it via Control Panel, and a separate error when trying to start the service via Services; something about not having the dependencies. I have been getting various remote access requests from an IP in netherlands, connected to port 80, and I'm afraid it's a hack attempt. My ESET NOD32 blocks it, but I'm still very cautious, and therefore I've temporarily disconnected my internet. I would really appreciate some help, as I have a VoIP meeting in a couple of days, and will not be able to get to it if I don't solve this issue.
