Need Help! Blocked connections.

Jump to solution

Okay so  I think I blocked a connection that is important.  Is there anyway to unblock a connection? I've been searching around on google but still haven't found anything to help me. I just hope that I can get some help with it since i've been stumped trying to figure it out myself, thanks.

Hi xspittfirex,

Select “Settings” once after clicking on Firewall > Select ‘Net Guard’ in the bottom.

Once after selecting the Blocked Connection use the EDIT option to make the necessary changes.

Hmm so where would I go to find that? Is it the just in the McAfee Security Center? Sorry, I'm new to this.

Hi,

Open McAfee Security center from the desktop icon or from the M icon at the bottom right corner of the system Tray

Once McAfee opens follow the procedure given by Jai Prakash in the above post and unblock the connection. Thanks,

Ah okay 1 last question, My subscription ran out a while ago due to some finacial problems and the Firewall and other options are unable to be clicked, and I'm guessing I can't open Net Guard either because of it. So will I not ever be able to unblock the connection? Or will I have to scrape together some money and re-sub to be able to unblock it? Sorry for being a bother

Hi,

In Order to view the Firewall settings and all the other settings you have to renew the McAfee that is expired now, In other words to unblock the connection you have to renew the McAfee security. Thanks,
