Are you the administrator of the computer? If so you can turn it on. If not I think you can't.

You don't want to use the Windows Firewall and the McAfee Firewall together. Only one firewall should be used.

You post are hard to understand.
If you have McAfee firewall active it will turn off Windows 7 Firewall. As has been posted by Bigmck, one at a time.
Because McAfee is malware in my opinion I suggestion removing everything McAfee from your computer. Using their on line removal tool. Then I suggest installing MSE and using the built in Windows 7 Firewall.
Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

Of course its your computer so its your choice.
