Re: Firewall keeps turning off

Tried fixit, but it didn't work.  It said that I needed to install some framework software, but when I clicked on the link to download the software, it came up that the web page didn't exist.

I plan to reinstall, but since, as I said above, it takes some time, I haven't done it as yet.

My question really was not about the role that Windows firewall plays when McAfee firewall is running, but rather what role does it play when McAfee firewall is not running.  Am I protected?

Re: Firewall keeps turning off

Please install all windows update before attempting the fixit..  Windows firewall offers basic protection but is not sufficient for all uses . I would suggest you repair the operating system before attempting to put in a firewall/AV

Re: Firewall keeps turning off

I assume that mean to uninstall/reinstall MVT, not the entire McAfee AV, correct?

Are you expecting that an updated MVT will be able to fix the McAfee firewall problem?  I tried running MVT several days ago and then again yesterday and it couldn't fix firewall issues.  Has MVT been updated to fix the issue?

Yes MVT. They mcafee say MVT working for them . Is your install 12.1 or 11.6 and if 12.1 is it a new install or upgrade from 11.6

My install is 12.1, Build 12.1.338.  It was a new install from my online account not the result of an update from 11.6.

No,I can't do it in the next 20 minutes.  I'm not at my home computer right now.  Best that I can do is to try it later tonight.

One other question, should I turn off Windows firewall before running the updated MVT?  Right now I have Windows firewall turned on.

Re: Firewall keeps turning off

yes reset to the way it was as  let Mcafee firewall try to work

We talked about the firewall issue and the that fixit fails if there are permission issues these need to be fixed but at present Mcafee will not post them publically in case someone trashes their registry. A tech will be contacting some users and checking it works everytime then they will see what they do for all here.

Hello vinod_r2,

Unfortunately, that fixit doesn't work for me because "security center" is not listed in the services list... see below:
