catdaddy : 1 post on the forum and 10 minutes later I have more answers than 2 tech support chat sessions (1h in total and one resetting all my firewall settings as " the solution").
Thanks a lot and sorry for having posted another thread for this (I just struggled naming the issue). Will close this one and follow the one you pointed me to.
The power of community
LOL...Thank you for the kind words We all try our best.
Glad that you better understand the issue,and know that it is definitely being investigated.
All the very Best
My bad I spoke too early ...
The other thread is about the advertising renewal popups, I also got them for some time ...
But nothing like not being able to block internet connections to programs, which is a functionality the tool is supposed to have.
So the common link can maybe be "how to learn where the screen ends when displaying a popup in Windows" ...
It may also help if you were to post and provide your Version/Build you are running in that thread, to add to the others experiencing the same.
You should be able to open your McAfee UI/Help/Help again/Expand/Allow or block websites.
Allow or block a website
You can also go to Internet Connections for programs, and edit the permissions as well.
I also in certain instances use my *Parental Control* Features to specifically block/allow websites/Persistent Tracking Cookies.
For the record, this is my version details (took a while to find where they moved it in the new UI )

Other users have your Version as well. There is a Version 14.0.R13 just released as well. In addition the latter part of this month a New Version/Build 15.0.R2 is slated to be throttled out. Which includes many fixes/enhancements to the New Installer.
We are presently awaiting the *FAQ* informing us as to what specifically has been changed/added.
