Suddenly today my Avast firewall stopped. I called them, they remoted in, and said they could not help me going through a lot of mumbo jumbo about how it was my fault that their product did not work. They said I had several virus protection softwares on my system. If that is the case, I did not load them. I have WinPatrol which should have alerted me to the fact that a program I did not load myself was being loaded. That did not occur. Please assist me in getting my firewall back up -- whether that is Avast or Windows. Thank you.
Update: Now, for some reason, my Windows firewall (which had been disabled) is now working. This is all very confusing. Thank you.
