Default Window firewall is not turning on

Hi
I have window XP on my computer and recently I downloaded the service pack 2. SP 2 has been insatlled on my computer but it is not showing my window firewall turning on. I tried to turn it on thorugh the control panel setting. When I clicked on window firewall in security setting, it showed me that "window firewall setting cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the window firewall/internet connect sharing service(ICS)?" I clicked "YES" and then I got message that window cannot start the window firewall/internet connect sharing service(ICS).
Please help.
Thanks

You might need to reinstall SP2. I can't think of anything else.
