Thank you, Selvan, for this article. I don't remember installing Windows Security Suite any time recently, but whatever did this sure screwed up a lot of settings! In Services, in MVT, in the Action Center.....
Do I assume, then, that we (who have been doing it) should continue manually starting the McAfee Firewall, or are things fine as they are?
Thank you again; your information is always appreciated.
WSS or Windows security suite is another name for all Mcafee windows suites. just the way they talk ie Livesafe etc. From that FAQ I gather McAfee starts the firewall automatically as required though Selvan will confirm.
