Problem with Internet Connection Firewall

using Windows HP home.
When I go to the advance tab and click to enable my connection firewall I get the following message:

"An error occurred while Internet Connection Sharing was being enabled. the Dependency Service or group failed to start".

I am the only computer in the house on the web. I have never enabled internet connection sharing.
I have uninstalled the driver for my network card and reconfigured my internet connection, yet I continue to get this error message which fails my attempt to turn my firewall on. Help!

ijust noticed that when I go to the Internet Connection Firewall service (ICF) I get a similiar error when trying to start it. The error is a dependency group failed to start (error 1068). Looking at the dependencies the only one that cannot be manually started is the Remote Access Connection manager. I'm connected via cable, so since that has a dependency on "telephony" i'm wondering if it's normal for that to not be able to be started without a modem? Bottom line is I cannot start the Firewall while in the services.mcs screen as well....

and:Remote Access Connection Manager failed to start because it could not create buffers. Restart the computer. Access is denied.

I am the only adm. and user acct on system. restarting fails to change this.

Remote Access Connection Manager failed to start because it could not create buffers. Restart the computer. Access is denied.
and this:
Remote Access Connection Manager failed to start because the Point to Point Protocol failed to initialize. The request is not supported.
IT ALL APPEARS TO RELATE TO the RACM

How did you find that? I did do a reistall of XP over my old XP last week, so i reinstalled Service Pak1 and I was able to active the firewall after rebooting. THANKS! I tried searching Technet with some of the terms listed in the symptoms, but I got nowhere. What's your secret?
