In the firewall settings and netguard are there any Ip addys listed as blocked. I can access forum no issues

You're posting under Family Protection so I assume this has something to do with Parental Controls.   The Parent or computer Administrator can allow any website in the settings.

For how to do that, open SecurityCenter then click the Help button on the right and scroll down to the appopriate section.  (Takes a while to load).

As far as the website you mentioned goes I can't see, at first glance anyway, any reason why it would be blocked, other than the fact it's a gaming forum & SiteAdvisor likes it.

Maybe I posted in the wrong section? I added it to the allow list in parental controls and it is still blocked. I'm the owner, admin, and only user of this computer.

Here's the error message i get:

Unable to access the network

Google Chrome is having trouble accessing the network.

This may be because your firewall or antivirus software wrongly thinks Google Chromeis an intruder on your computer and is blocking it from connecting to the Internet.

Allow Chrome to access the network in your firewall or antivirus settings.

If it is already listed as a program allowed to access the network, try removing it from the list and adding it again.

Error code: ERR_NETWORK_ACCESS_DENIED

I get a similar error when using firefox.

And as I stated above, when i turn off the firewall it goes there just fine.

What's going on? Can you take a second glance at it please?

That's odd but unfortunately I have no idea what it means.  I suggest Technical Support, it's free of charge by phone or online chat (don't bother with the email option if shown, it's too slow) and linked under Useful Links at the top of this page.

They are open 24/7.

Hi jhenry,

Open McAfee User Interface > Web and Email Protection > Firewall > Click Restore Default Settings and check if it resolves the issue.( Do not try if you have too Firewall customizations)

By any chance do you use a proxy server?

Please post the version McAfee Firewall installed on your machine. (Open McAfee UI > Click About)

Edit: Try this as well McAfee UI > Web and Email > Firewall > Internet connections for programs > Search for Chrome > Edit > Full Access and Turn Off Net guard > Click Apply.

Check if the issue persists

Turning netguard off seems to be the fix. (didn't know there was an option for that)  Thanks for the help.

But why does netguard have this site blocked? and will it cause harm to my computer? I'm still wary of turning off reccomeded firewall settings.

Edit> Also why is it only being blocked for me. There are several posting that they can go there no problem. (i assume without turning off firewall components)
