Greetings....I hope you can help me with my problem. I have had McAfee Security Center installed on my computer since the day I bought it (approx. 2 years), & recently I've been getting alerts telling me that my computer is at risk because the firewall is not turned on, & when I go into settings, & click turn on, it comes on for a brief second, and then turns back off immediately. Got on to McAfee's help center, ran several programs they suggested, i.e. McAfee virtual technician, Stinger, & also programs suggested within their forum, i.e. Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, Tuneup Utilities, none of which helped resolve my issue. I even uninstalled/reinstalled McAfee, & the only thing it did was stop giving me the notices, but if I go into settings for the firewall, it still says its off, & when I click turn on, it does for a brief sec, then goes right back off again. And when I checked the Windows firewall, it gives me an error when I try to change the settings (Error code 0x80070424). In searching through forums, it's sounding like I've got some sort of Virus/Malware that is causing this, but I've pretty much exhausted all my resources in trying to fix this......I hope you can help. My system is a Dell XPS 8100, Windows 7 Home Premium Ver.6.1, Build 7601: SP1.
