@Vishi Jack: There is no such “combofix Internet Security” program, there is a perfect “Comodo Internet Security” and a “combofix.exe” removal script useful for hard-to-modify malware. I think you are personally confused my friend, please double check your valuable details before posting.
Combofix.exe is the perfect program, but don’t count on it. I would copy Malwarebytes, install the update and run a full system scan. I think our latest version of adaware is 8 so make sure you have it. Also remember that S&D Spybot is a great program.
I was lucky to read in another forum post how a guy indirectly solves his windows firewall issues by just fixing another issue with a smart install wizard, unfortunately he or she has a solution, don’t reveal to anyone but worth considering that your problem could be caused by a second unknown problem.
Sometimes the market idea of running CHKDSK /r multiple times is a little tedious, but worth it.

Unable to create Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Exchange (ics) in response to Windows prompts
It is possible that Group Policy has disabled this service (assuming the PC is a member of a domain). If it turns out that it is not a member of any of the intended domains, the local security policy (gpedit.msc) can still be disabled. Also check that you are absolutely sure that you are the administrator of the local AS-PC. This will prevent the internet service from starting and is the easiest idea to test. It is also a modified structure for the specialist. If someone’s service subscription was affected, this could also create a new problem.
ICS Not Required For SP2

Windows Firewall/Internet Connection (ICS) failed to start when directly responding to a Windows request
A few days ago I had the same problems on a new XP Pro SP2 PC. I was unable to open firewall settings from the uninstall panel or launch this ICS product. The Microsoft documentation I’ve read says that SP2 XP PCs don’t use ICS, and this is corrected when SP2 is installed. All I know to fix this last issue is to reinstall SP2. SP2 threw an error during the process and also forced me to reboot. However, on reboot, Windows answered questions about automatic updates as if it could just install Service Pack 2. I then tried to open the firewall settings through the control cell for advanced updates and it worked. Good luck.
Same Problem: None Of The Suggestions Solve The Problem

Not normally required in response to ICS SP2
How do I start an ICS service?
Click “Start”, “Run”, type “services”. msc and click OK.To enable a service, locate it in the right pane and double-click its entry.Make sure the startup type is set to Automatic, then click OK.
I have the same error feeling about the firewall service as I did at the beginning, but I’ve tried all the most common suggestions and none of them allow me to use the firewall. What is generally strange is that when I reboot, some service is enabled for a while, but then something turns off, and I cannot turn on the house again, neither through the control panel, nor through the sequence Manage, Services, Create.
Why is my ICS connection not working?
In this scenario, the ICS settings are lost and the ICS connection does not work. In general, if there is no traffic on the ICS about this for 4 minutes, the service will be closed to the ground and will not restart automatically. Serious problems can arise if you improve the registry incorrectly using the Registry Editor or various other methods.
