Whether it be because of a crash (BSOD), power failure etc. I always get the same results:
After Windows experiences an unexpected shutdown my McAfee settings get reset to the default.
For example, all my firewall program permissions which I have set just vanish.
This matter could even be exploited by malicious programs. A program could effectively override and reset any custom McAfee settings which I have set.
Is this behaviour intentional? And is there anything I can do about it?
(By the way, I have experienced the same behaviour since SecurityCentre 2007 [? I think] on both Windows Vista and 7)
My firewall settings reseted to default on their own also
