Accidentally Blocked Google Chrome

Hello,

I accidentally blocked Google Chrome and I need it back desperately. How do I get it back? How can I unblock Google Chrome?

This is the actual response...

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 Chrome is an intruder on your computer and is blocking it from connecting to the Internet.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Add Google Chrome as a permitted program in your firewall's or antivirus software's settings. If it is already a permitted program, try deleting it from the list of permitted programs and adding it again.

Error 138 (net::ERR_NETWORK_ACCESS_DENIED): Unable to access the network.

Re: Accidentally Blocked Google Chrome

Open McAfee... Click on Firewall... then Firewall Settings.  There's a button at the top of this page that says "reset firewall"... that's the easiest way.  Or you can locate it under the "Internet Connections for Programs" section of the firewall settings page.
