I've recently did (what I thought) was my final vlited install. Everything seemed to work fine at first, but after doing windows update I've found my firewall has failed. I traced it back to the base filtering engine, which is reporting an error 15100 'the resource loader has failed to find the MUI file". There are also some other spurious entries in the service list. Both EMDMgmt (readyboost) and PolicyAgent (ipsec) are listed, even though they weren't installed. Their entry are completely blank, and any attempt access them gives me first: "Configuration manager: A general internal Error has occured" then "The resource loader failed to find the MUI file". So, can this be fixed, or do I have to do another install?

I know alot of the net services are heavily dependent on each other because of the ICS API, but I thought IPsec was seperate. I mean, the BFE is used by Ipsec, but surely the BFE wouldn't fail if IPsec weren't there, or would it?
