why does my mcafee firewall turn itself off
Is this Windows 7 SP1 and FULLY updated including IE10 whether or not you use it? Have you been using registry cleaners lately? The Base Filtering Engine is part of Windows and this is typical of what happens when registry cleaners are used. If that's the case see if the cleaner has a restore button. If not then you are going to have to either reinstall Windows or at least contact Technical Support for further advice.
At least that's relatively painless and free of charge, linked via Useful Links at the top of this page.
My firewall also turns itself off. I Ihave McAfee Security Centre version 11. 6, Virus Scan 15. 6, Personal Firewall 12. 6, Antispam 12. 6, Quickclean and shredder 11. 6, Parental controls 13. 6. Windows firewall is on though.
Windows Firewall and Base Filtering Engine are both in the 'Started' and 'Automatic' positions. If you are having issue of Firewall keeps off and cannot be turned on, please try following steps: Click "Navigation" on top-right, click "General Settings and Alerts" under Settings, click "Access Protection", uncheck "Use Access Protection", click "Apply" button.
Press WIN + R, type "regedit. exe", press ENTER. If Windows prompts whether to run the program, answer "Yes". In Registry Editor, navigate to key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetservicesMcMPFSvc, double click on "Start" on the right, change its value to 2, click "OK" button. In Registry Editor, if there is a sub-key named "Security" under key "McMPFSvc", right click on it and select "Delete" from menu.
Warning: please make sure right click on "Security", not "McMPFSvc". Close Registry Editor, re-enable Access Protection by reverting what has been done in step 2, reboot machine. After reboot, open McAfee Security Center, click "Navigation", then "Firewall" to make sure Firewall is now ON.
