Service will not start.
I get a message saying "error 0x80004015. The class is configured to run as a security id different from the caller."
It was working after installation of SP2, I went in and disabled the service and now when I try to restart it it gives me this error message.

I recently installed SP2 on a machine and ran into this error message every time I attempted to start the Windows Firewall:


Could not start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing Service (ICS) on Local Computer.

Error 0x80004015: The class is configured to run as a security id different from the caller.




Click “Start” followed by “Run...”


Type in “regedt32” and hit the enter key.


Locate the key


HKEY_Local_MACHINE\software\classes\appid\{ce166e40-1e72-45b9-94c9-3b2050i8f180} and highlight it.


Click “File” and then “Export” from the File menu and export a copy of the key.


Make sure the key mentioned in step 3 is still highlighted and delete it.


Restart your computer and the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing Service should start automatically.

That fixed it -Thanks.
Only thing different was I did have to manually start it the first time.
