IPSEC fails to start with Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified

One of our VMware guest servers started to behave strangely. After the restart machine could be pinged successfully but during the "Apply Computer settings" phase, machine looses ping with the message that one of the services failed to start.

I have checked event log and there was a huge number of error events with the following information:

IPSec, Event ID 4292

The IPSec driver has entered Block mode. IPSec will discard all inbound and outbound TCP/IP network trafic that is not permitted by boot-time IPSec Policy exemptions. User Action: To resotre ull unsecured TCP/IP connectivity, disable the IPSec services, and then restart the computer.

When you try to start IPSec service manually, you will receive the following error message:

Could not start the IPSEC Services service on Local Computer.  Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified."

Citrix Receiver was normally working, so I can't tell what has caused this behaviour.

I have tried to shutdown Citrix Receiver on my client machine and shutdown all other active Receiver processes, but without luck.

To solve this error a small registry change needs to be done.

With this selection you are automatically choosing the proper Windows firewall profile.

Unfortunately my network was automatically configured as a Public network.

As you can see from the picture below, Public network is not clickable so I can't change it.
