  1. I have Windows Firewall and McAfee Virus Scan on my computer and I cant turn on Windows Firewall. I have no clue whats wrong and I've been searching for answers for a few hours. Is McAfee causing a problem?

    If your version of McAfee contains it`s own firewall, then it will automatically have disabled the Windows Firewall as you wouldn`t want two firewalls running at the same time.

    Let`s have a quick check to see.

    Go and read this thread HERE and post a HJT log as an attachment into this thread.
