  • Ask in the comments if this still works in Windows 8:

    Have you tried to reset the Windows firewall?

    That sounds like you have some kind of malware on the machine taking them out.

  • I am having the same problem.  Also around the same timeframe.  McAfee will not allow me to turn on the McAfee Firewall or make changes.  I can not turn on Windows Firewall also.  Most of the blogs are for Win7 or other OS's and have not found any solutions for Win8.  When I contacted Microsoft they wanted me to pay them $100 to work with me to fix.  Please let me know if anyone has any thoughts.  I've run multiple scans using various Antivirus software and nothing has come up.  I've even done this in Safe Mode.
