Re: mcafee issues

Hey , make sure that both X:\World Of Warcraft\Launcher.exe and X:\World Of Warcraft\wow.exe have full access , you can check this by going to Web and Email Protection / Firewall / Program Permissions , if they do have full access and for some reason still refuse to work you can remove all the WoW related rules from the program permission tab and then try to get in the game again, when and if you do this Mcafee will prompt you to allow or block the following processes: launcher.exe and wow.exe select Allow always and the problem should be solved.

McAfee "Total Protection Service" is not a home product - you should be posting regarding that product in the Business forums:

You also have two threads going at the same time, which one can we close?
