After joining to domain , I went to firewall settings and put off the
windows firewall. and rebooted the machine, after rebooting
when machine comes up now it not on the network ,on network icon its showing
the red cross mark and not getting the ip address from dhcp server. when
when I tried to on the windows firewall its not comming up and error msg
unable to start windows firewall services. when I tried to start this
service manually its giving the error no 1068 .

Even I removed the machine from Domin back to standalone same problem .

There are many different versions of the Firewall settings, and they have
different effects. We really need to know the exact steps you took. The
problem seems to be that some service has failed to start, but exactly why is

Can you go to the System Event Log and look for any error messages from the
Service Control Manager Eventlog Provider? We would need all the information
in any error events that have to do with any of these services:

Base Filtering Engine
Windows Firewall
Windows Firewall Authorization Driver
Remote Procedure Call
DCOM Server Process Launcher

You may have managed to disable something that was needed here. For example,
the Windows Firewall service is still needed, even if the firewall is
