You're posting under Family Protection so I assume this has something to do with Parental Controls. The Parent or computer Administrator can allow any website in the settings.
For how to do that, open SecurityCenter then click the Help button on the right and scroll down to the appopriate section. (Takes a while to load).
As far as the website you mentioned goes I can't see, at first glance anyway, any reason why it would be blocked, other than the fact it's a gaming forum & SiteAdvisor likes it.
Maybe I posted in the wrong section? I added it to the allow list in parental controls and it is still blocked. I'm the owner, admin, and only user of this computer.
Here's the error message i get:
Unable to access the network
I get a similar error when using firefox.
And as I stated above, when i turn off the firewall it goes there just fine.
What's going on? Can you take a second glance at it please?
That's odd but unfortunately I have no idea what it means. I suggest Technical Support, it's free of charge by phone or online chat (don't bother with the email option if shown, it's too slow) and linked under Useful Links at the top of this page.
They are open 24/7.
Open McAfee User Interface > Web and Email Protection > Firewall > Click Restore Default Settings and check if it resolves the issue.( Do not try if you have too Firewall customizations)
By any chance do you use a proxy server?
Please post the version McAfee Firewall installed on your machine. (Open McAfee UI > Click About)
Edit: Try this as well McAfee UI > Web and Email > Firewall > Internet connections for programs > Search for Chrome > Edit > Full Access and Turn Off Net guard > Click Apply.
Check if the issue persists
Firewall defaults restored.
No proxy server
Chrome set to full and net guard off.
Still no change in access to this one forum. If i havn't mentioned before that is the only site i have a problem with.
firewall ver. 13.8
In the firewall settings and netguard are there any Ip addys listed as blocked. I can access forum no issues
I see from the version info that you have the latest Updates for McAfee Personal Firewall. I did a quick research of this website Below are the results.
1) Scanned it in VirusTotal - Came up Clean
2) Site Advisor did not block while clicking on the link however shows a Warning while entering the IP of the site directly.
3) Am unable to Ping this site (Request Timed Out)
4) Tracert results in below Image
Could you confirm if Parental controls are enabled in McAfee. If Yes disable it Temporarily using Admin Password.
Should be SA misdetection or Website is really Suspicious. Either way we need to Request a Review for this site and wait for the Results.
