Just bought my daughter a Sony Vaio laptop which is running Win 7 Home premium. Fully updated now, and MSE installed and I have uninstalled the McAfee that came with it however . . . when I look at the Windows Firewall settings it says "These settings are being managed by the vendor application McAfee Personal Firewall' and I cant figure out why as everything I can see in 'Installed Programs' to do with McAfee has been uninstalled.

Is this an issue, can this be changed to allow Windows to manage the firewall and if so how?

cheers and thanks

I removed it by running the uninstall or are your referring to some other tool?
