For no reason apparent to me, McAfee LiveSafe is suddenly totally preventing my access to the internet and from what I have observed here, this Support Community seems to be the only method of contacting any form of 'technical ' support.
I have eliminated other possibilities and it's become all too obvious that the firewall is not functioning correctly.
When I disable/turn off the firewall then, to no surprise, I can access the internet as previously and it's not by magic that this happens!
Whilst I have it disabled and attempt to access any McAfee 'Support' links directly from their website, it's rather curious that they do not work.
I have read other instances of this same issue in the Support Community and I have tried the various suggestions but all to no avail.
I'd like a McAfee technical support person to contact me directly to resolve this and if successful, I shall not hesitate to share the resolution with the community.
I'm using McAfee LiveSafe version 16.0, Release Name: 16.0 R43 with Windows 10 Home
Greetings from McAfee.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. I have sent a private message to you, kindly revert with the required details to help you regarding the firewall Issue.
Well, what an absolute farce this ultimately turned out to be1 After offering a couple of 'token' offerings in an attempt to resolve my issue, Tech' Support left me 'high and dry' after I had to continually chase them for a resolution that was not forthcoming. I was repeatedly given assurances that they would call me after 48 or 72 hours, but nothing!
After I finally initiated a chat call, another technician picked up the case and despite logs being taken and promises being made, nothing materialised. I shall now be cancelling my subscription and waving goodbye to McAfee.
