How to Unblock a website

I hope this turns out to be a simple question with a simple answer that I've just overlooked, but how do I undo a blocked website?

 

I'm using McAfee Security Center ver 10.5

 

Thanks in advance

    When you say "blocked", is the site being blocked by Parental Controls, or by something else?

    That sounds like the firewall "program wanting access" window. You've blocked, not a website, but a program. To check, open Security Center, and click on Firewall, then Settings. Click on Program Permissions and scroll through the list looking for anything that's Blocked. Unblock it if it's a mistake.

    Are you using any registry cleaners on the computer like System Mechanic orUniblue?

    It seems that system mechanic has removed some McAfee registry files and it’s because there is no more firewall settings on your computer. It will be better to remove system mechanic and re-install McAfee on your computer. I assume your firewall settings shows like below screenshot, right?

    Hi jatomac,

     

    Try turning on the Personal Firewall.

     

    His Prtscrn Snapshot, shows the Firewall is turned OFF.

     

    When the Personal Firewall is turned OFF, you won't have access to any of the settings or Controls for the Personal Firewall.

     

    The Firewall on your System is probably off.
