First, visit the Services settings, and check the properties of the firewall. It's probably not starting because some dependency isn't being satisfied.

You can also check the Event Log to see what it says about errors starting it.

That doesn't mean anything to me. All the hits on Google seem to associate the error with a game, World of Warcraft.
