Firewall shut off protection on its own

As CFP was initializing - it stopped all protect - popped up on the screen and I could not turn ON any of the protection modules.

I went into Control Panel Add/Remove and clicked on Visual C++, selecting change option. C++ seemed to do an installation.

CFP is up now, but the balloon tip over the task tray icon says that CFP is initializing.

Does this behaviour mean that CFP is not in full protection mode.

Do I need to re-install and go through all the multiple popup alerts as the program relearns again.

Does anyone know what happened?


Hi Steve,

I think you shouldn’t worry about this.
