hi, I'm new here!
I've got a little problem. so I use this Slovenian site (http://www.partis.si/prva) that provides me with many torrents. and I use it quite often too.
problem is that I have to turn off my firewall in McAfee antivirus plus to be able to download. otherwise my
utorrent only says "finding peers" and it never finds them.
my question is, how can I set my firewall so that the download will start without having to turn the wall off???
I've tried all I know in the firewall settings menu. all the programs in the "Internet connections for programs" menu are set to
Ful access and Net guard on. and I did not manage to find a solution in the "My network connections" too.
thanks a bunch!
I moved this to SiteAdvisor as I think that's the issue here. I had no problems going to that website but can only assume that downloads from there are being flagged as possibly dangerous as most torrents would be anyway because inherently they are dangerous. In such cases you usually have the option to proceed anyway. Don't you see that option?

By the way I use utorrent and it has no issues either.
no, I do not see the option to proceed. when I try to download, there is not a word from McAfee whatsoever.
the download just does not begin. no alerts from mcafee.
besides I can normally use other sites like Iso hunt or The pirate bay etc. a it works just fine.
oh, forgot to metion. I've had mcafee for like 2 months now but the problem in question just appeared
a week ago or so. so a recent update may be a cause of the problem I figure.
I'm not sure what to suggest in that case. Best for you to contact Technical Support. The only chat link for your area is here & is open 24/7: http://service.mcafee.com/faq/country.html

OK good luck.
On the off-chance that this is the firewall blocking the ports that utorrent needs to use for P2P, there's a thread here which might be useful - http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/297372
