Missing snap-in for Vista Firewall with Advanced Settings
by inanimateone - 11/30/08 8:29 AM
In Vista there is an option for Windows Firewall and one for Windows Firewall with Advance Settings. In order to access the Advance Settings the snap-in must be added in the MMC. Well my snap-in seems to be missing. When I open the MMC and go to File---Add/Remove Snap-In, the windows firewall snap in is not in the list. I cannot find anywhere to download this snap-in either. And if I just search from the Start Menu for Windows Firewall with Advanced Settings and click on the results I get the message MMC could not create the snap-in. Does anyone know where I can get it or where it may be located on my system if I do in fact already have it?
Here are some links I found but no solution:
