How to switch from McAfee firewall to windows firewall?

I have already gone through and turned off my McAfee firewall but when I go to my windows firewall it still says that McAfee controls my firewall settings. How do I go about fixing this issue?

Re: How to switch from McAfee firewall to windows firewall?

You would have to uninstall McAfee to obtain full control but, depending on which operating system this is, you may get limited access by simply turning McAfee Firewall off in SecurityCenter > Web and Email Protection > Firewall.
