Default FireWall Help

My firewall was somehow diasabled(probley by spyware or viruses), and when I try to enable it, the following message comes up. "Due to an unidentified problem, windows cannot display windows firewall settings". So does anyone know how to repair this? Would I have to get another firewall, or re-install my own. And if so, how would I do it?

use system restore to last point where your firewall was working, write back and tell us if you fix this prob.
