Re: Please help me to close ports 134 & 445 in my McAfee Firewall

OK, I guess it's wait and see what comes in via updates.

Re: Please help me to close ports 134 & 445 in my McAfee Firewall

Hi  Gemini

I uninstalled Mcafee SecurityCenter.  This automatically re-enables the Windows firewall.  You can go into control panel in Windows and just make sure that it is now enabled.  I then ran the Mcafee clean up tool.  Then I logged into my online mcafee account and commenced to download the software.  In the install panel, I selected CUSTOM INSTALL.  If you select this, then you can choose the componants you wish to install such as antivirus, antispam etc.  Just dont select firewall.  Security center will then install minus the firewall. 

I know how you feel as your situation is EXACTLY the same as mine.  Given the update didnt work for you, I am now not so hopeful.  I guess i will try it when i get access to some more broadband bandwidth.  Running out at the moment.  Perhaps Selvan can help you?  He said he would need to get some logs to find out why the fix does not work.

Hi Gemini

Given you have the update installed, can I suggest that you do not uninstall the firewall.  I am contacting Selvan (Tech person for Mcafee) to ask if he cant contact you to fix this once and for all.
