Security center faulting - Firewall keeps turning off & Real-time scanning also has issues

This problem first came to my attention when the taskbar notification for the firewall came up. I opened security center to the big red warning "Your computer is at risk! Firewall is off" and cliked to turn it on. It worked; so far so good. However, Realtime scanning almost immediately turned itself off. Not so good.


So, I try to turn real-time scanning back on but the interface is minimally responsive. I can get to the point where I can see the "Real-time scanning settings" link but clicking on it does nothing. So I let it sit for a bit and try again. Still nothing.


I begin to research the issue and find that I'm not alone. In the meantime, the firewall turns itself off again (same cycle ensues: I turn it on, everything comes up green, real-time scanning turns off, can't turn it on, lather, rinse, repeat...). The discussion boards advise me to run MVT.


I do. It finds several things but only solves some. My session ID is 34900334.


Your help is appreciated.


Gotta go; firewall needs to be turned on again. (!!)
