Brave browser not working after installing Mcafee

Hi guys!

I can't get my Brave browser to work with my newly acquired Mcafee Total Protection program. I can get Chrome and Opera browsers to work, but not my Brave browser. I use each browser for different things.

First time i opened both Chrome and Opera, Mcafee asked for permission for these programs to access the internet. This did not happen with Brave. I tried seeing if it was a firewall restriction, but it was not. I tried restricting it's connection and re-enabling the connection to see if it would work. No dice. I'm not sure what other settings i can use to allow Brave to use the internet.

My knowledge of computers and their programs is limited. Normally I can google or YouTube the solution but I'm not able to find anything on my issue. I'm hoping to get some help or suggestions for fixing this issue please. Thanks!
