I don't see how it could possibly remove your firewall, can you give us more information. OS, Firewall etc, and exactly what happened.

Remember Microsoft Spyware is a Beta release. One should not use Beta ver of any application software if not fully confident."rawprawn" has asked you a question to answer. Perhaps he may be able to help you out.

windows xp home sp2, 3Ghz barton, 1Gb ddr, asus a7n8x-x mobo, 55o watt psu, x800pro graphics, all drivers/patches up to date.

mcafee firewall plus (fee on pc advisor cover disk).

similiar to posted question, whenever i installed microsoft antispyware and updated it - any time i reboot now the firewall is disabled and you have to manually enable it. before installation of antispyware, mcafee always enabled itself automatically on boot up.
