    Hello,

    My Trend Micro antivirus wrongly detected WFC as a malware.

    I wanted to uninstall it but something went wrong.

    Now I cannot find Windows firewall control anywhere on my computer or in the registry, but the setup file won't allow me to reinstall, saying that "Windows Firewall Control" is already installed.

    What can I do ?
    Thanks !

    Hi,

    I've successfully uninstalled WFC by searching references in registry.
    It was a key that was blocking the reinstall.

    Can you close this topic ?
    Thanks!
