Can't start Windows Firewall

Couldn't start windows firewall via control panel/security center. Tried starting the Windows Firewall services manually and got the following message:
could not start the windows firewall/internet connection sharing ics services
error 10047: an address incompatible with the requested protocol was used..

Fix: netsh winsock reset
then reboot
see -- After you run Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware (Beta), you have network-related problems, or you receive an error message
