Windows Firewall will not enable. Here is what is going on:

Windows Firewall - "Windows Firewall is not using the recommended
setting to protect your computer."
"Windows Firewall was unable to make the requested updates."

Security Center - "Windows Firewall is turned off."
"Security Center can’t turn on Windows Firewall."

Services - There is no Windows Firewall Service

I have performed a Google search with little or no relevant results.

Performed SFC /scannow. No integrity issues.

Actually the Base Filtering Engine (bfe) is a system service sitting below
Windows Firewall which provides interfaces for lots of different firewalls,
anti-virus, etc.
The Windows firewall service itself is just Windows Firewall (MPSsvc).
