Quick question on port blocking


Please can you help me with a quick one, Mcaffee has taken complete control over the windows 7 firewall any rules i apply arent adhered to, Mcaffee package wont allow ranges of ports to be disabled, modem set up wont allow either..
Any ideas? Is there a program that will allow me to lock down TCP/UDP port access.

Thanks R

Use the built in Windows Firewall to control port access.
