This gateway i got came with mcafee, i deleted it using the mcafee uninstaller but the firewall says its active when i check under windows security. i've looked around in regedit and didn't see anything about mcafee. so what im asking is how can i get rid of the firewall?

Have you checked the windows firewall? It could be causing the security center to say active.

Can you post a screenshot of the message you receive stating a/your firewall is active?

You need to run McAfee install program to access the uninstall tool. If you have the McAfee CD run that, or if preinstalled see if there is an instalation file on the HDD, otherwise contact McAfee for removal tool.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
