My Firewall keeps turning off


I hope you can help as I have tried everything on the web.   My McAfee Firewall keeps turning off.   I have read a number of topics and tried

a few.

I also checked runining services.msc that windows firewall is not present on the list.   Hope you are able to help as this is so annoying.

Re: My Firewall keeps turning off

If Windows Firewall Service is not present then your system is corrupted.   Have you had any other symptoms?

Also what operating system and service pack, if applicable, are you using?

Try the suggestions in the last link in my signature below.

First see if you can System Restore to before all this happened

Then try Stinger, Malwarebytes Free and so on.

If all else fails then run Hijackthis and post its log on one of the suggested forums in that link
