Run the Virtual Technician to see if it finds and fixes any issues.

I'm having the same problem as topic starter. Getting a notification that my firewall is down, when I'm enabling it again I go to the firewall menu and see that my Anti-Spam is also turned of. As suggested I ran/tried to install the MVT program but it doesn't seem to do anything? When I click the MVTInstaller.exe a popup asks me if I allow this app to make  changes to my system and I click Yes. I waited for 30 minutes but nothing happens? I also can't find a program added to my start menu or something added to my LiveSafe software? What should happen running this program?

Will let Peter enlarge on this reply as he has win 10

I just tested the install on win 8.1 and it downloaded a MVTInstaller.exe file that when ran installed MVT and asked do u want to run it.

I am in windows not in the windows app screen unsure if that is the difference will see what Peter says

It ruins on your desktop, work from there as this is not an App. I'm afraid I no longer use Win 8/8.1 and when I did I used software to make it default to the desktop with a normal Windows 7 Start Menu (Stardock - Start8), so I'm afraid I'm not much good of a guide.

Technical Support is best if you still, can't do it.
