Am having a littel problem with using Mcafee 6.0. This problem seems to affect only a few of the applications I have specified settings for. Specifically settings for McAfee components, and IE 6.0. Basically I always specify the settings for the ofending applications to "Outbound Access Only". Then when I reboot my PC I find that the firewall settings have been altered to "Allow Full Access".

Has anyone come across this problem, or have a solution or suggestion. Thanks.

Many Regards.

I apologize for the delay getting to your log, the helpers here are very busy.

There is some malware out there that can mess with your firewall settings. Go ahead and post a HiJackthis log and I will take a look :)
