I installed today McAfee Total Protection 2013 (firewall version 13.1.127)
- fresh install windows 8 pro
- old install windows xp
Firewall access list not working! I disabled some programs, but still use Internet
When I'm using a new program, not prompted, and I can not choose whether to allow this Internet connection
The 2012 version it worked perfectly!
QUESTUION: How do I download Total Protection 2012 SETUP? Because 2013 too many errors
I don't understand "Firewall access list not working" can you clarify please?
Was McAfee newly installed in Windows 8 or upgraded from a previous version?
Is this the retail or beta version of the software?
If you upgraded from 2012 then best to uninstall in the normal way, then download MCPR cleanup from Useful Links at the top of this page, reboot and reinstall from the online account.
Also try the McAfee Virtual Technician and see it works

Two SETUP, same problem!
1st: yesterday buy windows8 pro RETAIL. fresh install. 1st McAfee setup
Traffic Controller: Stealth
Smart Advice and Advanced Settings: Ask me decice
Blocked program (example): Total Commander
- Total Commander still use Internet (sample ftp.freebsd.org)
- When new program access internet, i do not choice: trust or not trust
2nd: old windows xp setup, today uninstall TP 2012, run MCPR.exe, install TP 2013
MVT SAY: NO PROBLEM!
Sorry I'm not familiar with Total Commander but if you highlight it in picture #3 above and then click Edit you will be able to unblock it.
If you set your firewall to Stealth then many programmes will be blocked. Smart Access is the normal setting.
