Windows 10 Internet Connection Sharing ICS hung on starting - Solved

 Windows 10 Internet Connection Sharing ICS hung on starting

 Windows 10 Internet Connection Sharing ICS hung on starting

my ICS service is hung on starting, it was working fine last night when I went to bed, It updated while i was sleeping and now ICS wont start at all, and i need it to for the way my network is setup. I've checked all the dependencies and they are all running, Windows Firewall is also running fine, I just cant share my internet connection to my network anymore.
I've tried sfc scan in command prompt, ive tried manually killing and restarting the service but it will not work, it says "The service is taking too long to start." it doesn't actually hard fail it just hangs there. I have a 9 year old son with autism that uses this network to watch his cartoons in his room when he gets off the bus, I need to get this fixed. I even tried to just reset my PC, but it tells me my password is invalid which is 100% BS because its the same password and account im using right now to post this question. 

Solution:


1) Settings -> Update and Security -> 
 

2) Open Windows Defender -> 
 
 
3) Open Windows Defender Security Center -> 
 
4) Open Firewall and Network Protection -> 
 
5) Restore Firewall default settings
