When you go to services.msc you will find Base Filtering Engine service as shown in the image below. You can accordingly find the service and do the needful. If the issue still persists then the you need to run NRT for uninstalling norton and then you need to reinstall the norton program.
For uninstalling you can click Here and you will receive a security warning which you need to click on to get the NRT downloaded and then you can run it. After computer restartes you can click on Norton 360 5.0 Standard or Norton 360 5.0 Premier.

If you are still having trouble finding the service (on an XP SP2 or later system), please run a SFC scan.
Click on START and type in cmd in the Start search box at the bottom of the Start menu. Right click on the cmd.exe at the top of the find list (where all the program short cuts used to be listed) and select "Run as administrator" . In the User Account Control click "continue". In the new Command Prompt window
Type SFC /SCANNOW and press ENTER.
Follow the prompts (if any) and once this is finished, reboot your system. Then try and find the service again.

This issue is caused by a known problem in Windows, introduced by a recent Microsoft Update, which affects some configurations. The Norton folks are certainly trying to develop a workaround--and I would certainly understand, if they hadn't found one by some point, if you switched to a lesser product that was unaffected (since more robust protection that won't run on your machine still leaves you unprotected). But your anger seems misdirected, when it's another company that hosed things up.
Have you tried the workaround that Microsoft has offered, which has been documented in several other threads here? It's complicated and dificult to follow (as one might expect from them!) but several of the folks here have developed detailed instructions--illustrated with screenshots--to help people through it.

This issue is started after a new updated released by Microsoft.
There is one more issue assosiated with this problem. In most of the cases there is one infection is detected in the computers.
Enable the Base Filtering Engine service
If you receive the User Account Control prompt, click Yes or Continue.
If Startup type is not Automatic, then in the drop-down list, click Automatic.
If the Service status is not Started, then click Start.
If the above one is not working try the following registry Fix.
Registry editing for Turn On the Base Filtering Engine.
Save the file on your desktop. Rename the file as BFE.reg
Open the Registry Run-->Type REGEDIT and press on Ok.
Now you will get a Registry Editor. Click on the File Menu in the Registry Editor and press on Import. Locate the file BEF.reg on the desktop. Press on Open. –> Yes -> Ok.
Now restart the computer. After that go to the registry once again and go to the location
HKLM\System\Current control set\services\BFE
Right Click –> Permission –> Advance –> Add — > Everyone
Now restart the computer. The issue will be fixed now.
