The improved version of Your Personal Firewall now includes a function called Net Guard. This new function uses McAfee's TrustedSource service to maintain a repository of known good and known bad domain names and IP addresses. If you try to go to a known bad website or address, Net Guard will protect you by blocking the connection.
If you experience issues navigating to a location that you believe is trustworthy, check to see what the rating of the web page is.
Quick check from the TrustedSource home page:
- Open a web browser.
- Go to http://www.trustedsource.org/en/home.
- Under TrustedSource Query type the domain name, URL, or IP address.
- Click Search.
