MS AntiSpyware is not responsible for disabling your firewall, this is done
due to Adware that was removed from your system (which is good), and now your
firewall is showing disabled, as those warnings were not given to you while
the adware was installed.

If you have this problem, one of these two solutions sould fix it:
Click on Start then Run --> cmd.exe
and then, in the command prompt, type:

netsh.exe winsock reset

and hit Enter

If that doesn't cut it, try this winsock fix availiable at:

Hope that helps
