The Firewall & The DLL Propaganda

Was hoping the IT savvys out there could help me out with this one.

I downloaded the Microsoft Anti Spyware Beta1 and after it has done its
scanning & cleaning process, i encountered the following errors:
1. Upon startup, Windows Security Center noted that my "computer is not
currently protected by a firewal." And when i tried to click the 'Windows
Firewall' icon, i get a message that says "Windows Firewall settings cannot
be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to
start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service?" Upon
clicking 'yes', i get another message that says "Windows cannot start the
Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) Service".
2. I get a popup error box that states a missing newdot.dll
(C:\PROGRA~1.NEWDOT\~1.NEWDOT\~1.DLL ).

I have been trying to figure out whether the two errors are interconnected
and have been trying to replace the lost files in my PC but to no avail.

Really worried here about the security of my PC. The last thing i need is
instability.
