Good day everyone, here are the steps that worked for me with the BFE issue.

Recently, many customers reported the Windows Firewall issue. This seemed to be caused by a wide spread malicious application.
The error message "Windows Firewall can't change some of your settings. Error code 0x80070424" will pop up when you try to change the Windows Firewall settings. In the meantime, when you restart the system, it might pop up an error saying that "Base Filtering Engine Service" could not be found in the system.
Please note that the same error code could pop up when you try doing anything in Windows Defender.
Download the registry files (You can also export HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BFE from another working Win7 PC)
Launch and import them to registry
Restart your PC
Now,open RUN and type
regedit and click ok
go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BFE
Right click on it-permissions
Click on ADD and type
Everyone and click ok
Now Click on Everyone
Below you have permission for users
Select full control and click ok
Now,open RUN and type services.msc and click ok
start base filtering engine service and then windows firewall service.
After these steps, we tested the windows firewall service and received an error code 5. We resolved it using the following method.
- In Registry Editor, browse to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess
- Right click SharedAccess, and click Permissions.
- Click Add.
- In the “Enter the object names to select” field, type “NT SERVICE\mpssvc”. Then click Check Names. The name should change to MpsSvc
- Click OK.
- Select Full Control in the Allow column.
- Click OK.
Windows 7 (all versions) / Windows Vista (all versions)
After doing so, we were able to install restart and contine to see the affected PC on the network and SEP installed beautifully.
I hope this helps others who have gone through this pain in the neck of an issue. :-)
