McAfee Firewall turning off automatically

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.
