Can't turn off Firewall

On Windows 10 I'm trying to resolve an issue with the Origin installer, one of the suggestions for which is to temporarily disable the firewall when running. However, I go into the firewall settings in the McAfee Security Centre application, click Turn Off, select to turn on in 15 minutes from the drop-down, click Turn Off again - and absolutely nothing happens. On that page it still says Firewall:On; on the PC Security tab it still says the firewall is on. I've googled and can find no solution. How do I turn the thing off??? #firewall

Re: Can't turn off Firewall

Hi @Tynemonkey 

We are sorry for your inconvenience caused. To turn off firewall kindly update the McAfee application and reboot the PC. check if you are able to turn off firewall. And also check if your profile has administrator privileges to modify any settings from the application. If the issue still persists kindly update us with the issue screenshot to assist further.

Thanks & Regards
