Hi, Folks -

My Windows XP (all Service Packs and updates) Firewall is currently ON, but
somehow is not able to be shut off. I'm not aware of when this condition
began. Event Viewer provides the following message:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7023
Date: 5/14/2005
Time: 5:14:28 PM
User: N/A
The Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service terminated
with the following error:
An address incompatible with the requested protocol was used.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at

I've looked through the above-supplied MS Support Center page on this error,
but cannot seem to get SC QUERY to work properly in diagnosing this problem.
All other Online functions of the computer work fine.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks much in advance,

- Bill
