    I installed Microsoft Security Essentials. My operating system is XP Home SP3. I tried to start Windows firewall . I got error 1068. My computer works fine. No spyware, no malware. I opened Windows services. Three services would not start. Security Center, error 1068; Windows Firewall/internet connection sharing, error 1068; and Windows Management Instrumentation, error 1068. WMI has not worked for several months. I down loaded a copy of SP3 to a CD. I tried to install it, without success. My computer is fast, and works fine except for these issues. I tried several solutions that are posted with no success. My machine is behind a router. I have used Zone Alarm firewall (free version) for several years.
    Thank You in advance.
