Firewall Keeps Disabling On Its Own, OneCare & Defender RRS feed

  • Question

  • My firewall continually disables itself in Live OneCare and Windown Deffender without notification. OneCare is still showing the green shield and defender never alerts unless I manually check it. Disables Defender and Onecare withing an hour after I fix it.


    Have ran Defender scan, OneCare complete virus scan, and the online malicious scan. Also ran OneCare online utility scan but they all found nothing. All up to date.


    Two days ago my OneCare virus scan did locate a virus (Downloader) which it removed. And hasnt located again on either my main or Backup drive. But a virus did infect it two weeks ago causing my system to crash, and requiring a clean install. My Laptop is only 46 days old.


    Any suggestions as to what I should do to fix this or an idea of what my next step should be? I dontt want to go through another loss.


    Im running Vista Premium with sp1

    New Dell Lap Top

    Inspiron 1525


    Have Cable Modem and Wireless router configured by LiveOneCare.
