I have windows xp, wireless broadband on a Dell laptop Inspiron 600m
I too am having the same problem. In this case it says firewall is set to open protection. when i go to configure it reads that it's on. When i set it to specific preferences it then turns it off.
this is just one example, it keeps bringing up the same Fix error. I've already removed and reinstalled the McAfree.
my security center is 9.15
I have a Dell dimension 550 running XP with AT&T DSL connection and have had this problem for over a month. It is MOST irritating and very hard to believe that with all that has been written on the WEB about the problem that McAfee doesn't seem to be able to come up with a solution. I followed the steps recommended by their IT folks and it was a complete waste of my time and it did not work. (Uninstall, re-install, etc., etc., etc.
