Re: [WIN7] Win7 Internet/Firewall problems NSI status is started.
Starting Network Store Interface Service results in:
Error 1079: The account specified for this service is different from the account specified for other services running in the same process.
And you changed/verified that this service is using Local Service (note the space) for the logon?
Edit: if so, try this user instead: NT AUTHORITY\LocalService
Do the same for Base Filtering Engine (BFE) service.
Be sure to blank the password for each and then restart the services.
This what I see for Network Store Interface Service logon on tab
I will try the other user instead
Tried NT AUTHORITY\LocalService for both services, and got the same error code when restarting Network Store Interface.
Also, when I go back into the logon tab for both services, it does not show NT AUTHORITY\LocalService but simply Local Service instead.
They are the same user, just slightly different syntax to arrive at it. Try restarting the computer since we've made these changes and see what happens.
So, I restarted the machine and retried starting those services and am still getting the same errors. Is this looking like a fresh install of Windows is required?
you might try a repair/upgrade install first.
Thanks for your trouble in this, I'll give that route a shot.
Let us know.
