Hello Bleeping Computer folks, and Merry Christmas!

Helping a friend with their computer. Chased off Windows 7 AV rogue, pulled out a lot of adware with MBAM, but can't seem to get Mcaffee firewall to stay on.
It warns that it is off, but then it turns off again within seconds of turning it on. Any ideas? Please help!

Hi -
Have you visited the MBAM forum and asked how to set the "exclusions" for your McAfee ??

Thank You -

Hi Narenxp,

Thanks so much for the cure! Followed your registry tweakage and services restart and it's back feeling healthy.

Thanks again,
