Settings changed in McAfee

On Monday 04/29/2012 before I do my daily manual update to Mcafee Internet security  I noticed some

of the settings had been changed. IE   stealth mode changed to outgoing, some ports had been

checked to turn them open/on,  attack protection "all turned off".

I spoke with tech support and they explained that this could happen due to changes in windows

via an update?(no updates to windows since 04/12/2012

Has anyone heard of this?  That does not make any sense, why would updating your

operating system change just  these settings. 

Also have done a Hijack this scan of ADS and found 2 files listed:

C:\programdata\temp : D1B5B4F1

C:\users\all users\temp : D1B5B4F1

Can someone refer me to  a site that can delete/remove these

McAfee Internet Security

Version 11.0

Build 11.0.654

Windows 7

Appreciate any assistance
