McAfee constantly turning off firewall

My husbands computer is the 'main' computer and mine is covered under a multi McAfee licence.  Ever since he renewed our membership for cover McAfee is constantly turning off my firewall.  My husbands computer is completely fine.

I've done everything I can think of.  There are no outstanding windows updates and I can't find any evidence of problems on my system.  Can anyone help as it's driving me potty!
