Trouble Opening ESPN3 With Firewall On

I'm new to this site - thanks in advance for any advice/help!  I'm running Windows XP on a home desktop.  I can open and run ESPN3 fine when I disable McAfee firewall, but when it's enabled, ESPN3 won't open/run.  Is there a way to "allow" the firewall to accept ESPN3?  Or alternatively, how risky is it for me to just disable the firewall for periods of 2 or 3 hours in order to use ESPN3?

Hi. Try disabling just the Netguard but just leave the firewall on. This is totally safe.
