I just wanted to know if anyone could help me out- I'm not too good at all with tech. So last night McAfee asked me to restart my computer to install its update and when I restarted it, I found my firewalls turned off. I use windows defender along with McAfee (the paid subscription kind). Windows started to block the programs on my computer even though they're legit and I hardly go on anything other than gmail, Reddit, tumblr, YouTube, etc on my browser so idk if it has something to do with that. I had to start up the firewall on my own after that.
As of now, I am doing a complete reset of it (the clean drive reset one) but want to know if that was necessary to begin with? Is that part of the update/ does it mean anything bad? I'm overall an anxious person so any reassurance would be nice.
Thanks, hope you have a good day
