    there are a number of posts trying to solve the problem
    where the Windows firewall doesn't open
    Message is
    "Due to an unidentified problem, Windows cannot display Windows
    Firewall Settings "

    A symptom of the problem is that MSINFO32 displays that it's service
    pack 1, whereas in internet explorer, clicking help..about, it
    displays that it is service pack 2.

    A likely cause is an experiment I did. Using a Win XP sp1 CD, I tried
    repairing Win XP sp2.

    I solved the problem by [re]installing service pack 2 from the
    microsoft website. note-I didn't try uninstalling sp2 beforehand.
