Firewall doesn't seem to be working.

There's no security icon in taskbar group. In services.msc it seems to flick between starting and running.

In settings I get this

clicking the button has no effect. Also this -

in powershell (admin) I get

PS C:\Users\***> netsh advfirewall show allprofiles state

An unrecoverable Windows Defender Firewall error (0x45b) occurred.

I tried a repair install which seemed to fix the firewall problem, but on restart it was back.

Not having a firewall is a bit of a worry - should I look around for a 3rd party firewall to use until I can fix Defender?

edit - I did another repair install which cured the problem, but then had a windows update that required a restart and the problem returned after restart - no firewall.
