I know there's a bug that is supposed to be fixed by an update that should be rolling out any time now, so that could be it.
There was also an issue with some recent Microsoft Update and Microsoft put out a Fixit for it.
See the last link in this post: https://community.mcafee.com/message/289671#289671
I have been reading this thread for hours now trying to figure out what to do to fix my computer. I followed posted advice at #108: uninstalled McAfee, run the cleanup too & fix it. I still have the problem. The removal tool did NOT remove all of McAfee files, Fix It did not. It still recognizes McAfee. What do I do now. Is there not an answer to this.
McAfee personal firewall won't start because windows firewall is missing BFE file. I think its missing a couple of files. Fix It recognized that they were missing, but couldn't fix. Now What? It's now 1:15 AM, I'm exhausted and I suppose all McAfee help is sound asleep.
