Re: Help!

Many posts on this under other Topics.  The only way I was able to fix issue was to uninstall and reinstall McAfee software but yesterday the firewall was shutdown again.

Troubleshooting tips did not find malware, viruses, etc.

I'm on WIN 8 with Security Center version.

Re: Help!

Yes, I've seen but there is lots of other solutions, i can't find proper one. Is possible to do this other way?

Re: Help!

As I stated,  I tried to follow the troubleshooting tips from McAfee tech support and other users and it wasn't helpful and was a waste of my time.  You should probably check for Malware, etc but nothing was found when I did this.

Only uninstalling /reinstalling helped the firewall shutdown issue (for at least a few months anyway).
