I'm hoping someone can help me with a problem that has recently popped up. My McAfee Firewall keeps turning itself off automatically. If I turn it back on it works fine for a while (5 min01 hour) thenthe warning pops uyp again.
I'm running Windows 7 64-bit.
I've tried the following:
- Control Panel -> System adn Security -> Windows Firewall. There's an "Update your Firewall Settings" error. When I click on the "Use Recommended Settings button I get error code 0xc8007042c.
- Services (as admin) -> Windows Firewall: the Startup Type is set to Automatc. The Service Status is Stopped. When I press the start button I receive error code 1068.
-Ran Fixit from Microsoft and that didn't help.
Any suggestions would be greatly apprecaited.
This is Windows 7 SP1 I trust and also make sure that your have IE9 installed and updated, even if youn don't use it, McAfee does.
Try running the Virtual Technician to see if it will fix this: http://mvt.mcafee.com/
If not I recommend opening a case with Technical Support. They are linked under Useful Links at the top of this page and it's free by phone or online chat.
I hope you aren't running registry cleaners. If you are try seeing if there is a restore button on them.
