    Windows Firewall


    Hello everyone
    I have no permission to turn Firewall off or on because of Mcafee. Mcafee does not allow me to turn it off or on. I tried to do it but there is no option in Mcafee to turn it off or on. I would like to keep Mcafee and prevent Mcafee from control it.

    Is there any way to do it?

    Windows firewall control is now managed from the Defender interface (Creator's build).

    You would only want to turn it off for test purposes, assuming your Mcafee is AV only.
    If your McAfee is an internet security package (AV + firewall) I would expect it's turned the Windows firewall off.

    If you would care to specify your Mcafee product someone might comment further who has experience of it.

    I would expect that if you install a 3rd party firewall it will disable Windows' own.
