I am getting a message that my firewall is disabled. When I click "fix" is says my computer is protected. A few minutes later is says the firewall is disabled again.
Do you have any other security software ,especially firewall application running in the computer.
Also specify what type of operating system you use in the computer ?
note: moving thread to Personal firewall 10-2009

I use Windows Vista and the only other protection I have is the built in firewall in the system.
Please try the following steps;
1.Check and delete if you find any other security software folders from following locations : 1. C:/program files & common files ;
2. Start - start search - In the search box type services.msc
3. In the window that opens up,Check whether all McAfee programs Status says Started & Startup type is in Automatic.
If not double click on the particular service and change the start up type to Automatic
4.Click on the recovery tab and change all three failures to "Restart the service".
5.After its done for all mcafee service close all open windows and restart the computer.
6. Open security center and check for updates.
Do report back if you come across any issues on the same.
