Ever since i downloaded the new mcafee some programs such as skype won't connect. On the Mcafee home window it says 'firewall: On' but when i go to settings it says the firewall is off and when i press 'turn on' it immediately switches back to turn off. All the options under the tabs security levels, smart advice, firewall history are all blanked out too. I'm running windows 7.
what can I do about this?
after one of my video games updated today it can't connect to the internet anymore i assume due to mcafee.
Even the Mcafee back-up protection which comes with Mcafee can't connect to the internet while my chrome browser works fine.
I have tried reinstalling mcafee but to no avail - lots of programs won't connect to the internet and my settings are acting strangely as described above.
Does anyone have any idea how to fix this and get my programs to work again?!?!
Please try the below steps and let us know teh outcome ;
Click on start – click on start search – then type – run
In the open prompt , type services.msc
From this window locate a service that says Windows Firewall services
Right click on it and select properties
From here select the Start up type to be Automatic
From the Recovery tab – please select Restart the service for all the failures.
Click Apply and then Ok
Restart the PC and check the status of your McAfee firewall
I managed to sort it out by uninstalling mcafee and using another mcafee program that completely removed all mcafee software. I suspect it was i didn't uninstall the old mcafee version completely?
Glad that you are OK now . Do get back to us if any issues.
