Fire wall keeps turning off


It all started like this.."Your computer is at risk" keeps on appeared...then when i checked i found the Firewall also keeps turning off.

I gone thro these discussion forum. Run services.msc

Found Windows fire wall service was disabled. Through its properties i made it Automatic and done Start.

but when i restart the computer, always i need to do this procedure, becos it shows Windows fire wall Disabled. Mcafee also some times says found Trojan and computer needs to be restarted.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. Pls help me to find out what happen and how to resolve this.

Re: Fire wall keeps turning off

Run Stinger, RootkitRemover and Malwarebytes Free all linked in the last link in my signature below.   See if they find and fix any malware.

Then run the Virtual Technician to see if it will fix the firewall issue.


Also, as McAfee interface relies on IE make sure that Internet Explorer is version 11, even if you never use it.
