I know this is an old post that I'm replying to, but I was just having the same issue tonight. The game that I was trying to play was City of Heroes. There had been no connection issues at all until tonight when the game downloaded an update. (This will always trigger McAfee to tell me that the game was changed and it gives me the pop up asking if I want to allow it again.) So I clicked "Allow" like usual, switched back to the game and tried to connect, but got nothing.
I tried a bunch of different things, and even went as far as trying a couple restore points with System Restore. That did nothing but further **** me off.
To make a long story short, in the program access list, there were actually multiple entries for City of Heroes (due to me having separate installations for Beta releases, and the Test Server). I decided to nuke them all and let the firewall start permissions from scratch. I fired CoH up, told McAfee to "Always Allow", and it's working. Still in Stealth Mode on the firewall. Pretty happy about that.
Yes, McAfee, you may hire me.
