Why is my firewall turning itself off?

Both my firewall and McAfee Virus Real Time Scanner have suddenly started turning themselves off. I turn them on, they turn themselves off. Any suggestions?

Re: Why is my firewall turning itself off?


Please add some more information like any major changes done on the computer recently including a system restore or installing any applications etc.

If nothing has been done, then proceed with re-installation of McAfee.

Please make sure to use the MCPR tool after removing McAfee from Add/Remove programs.

If issue persists after re-installation, I will suggest that you contact the McAfee Technical Support. Free phone and chat supports are available..
