Hello achienina What Anti-virus program are you running?
Have you done an in-depth scan, and did it find any malware?

EDIT... oops, Windows Firewall needs to be disabled in Services in order for McAfee's firewall to work.

HI Jacee

i did run an in depth scan, i also run a Malwarebyte and it eliminated 1 trojan last night. then after cleaning, i tried restoring the Windows Firewall and McAfee firewall but both wont work. It says that Firewall program does not exist. Even Windows update was affected.

Did you save the Malwarebyte's text log? What Trojan was found?
