Clarification about Netguard

I recieve an error occasionaly as "Mcafee has encountered a problem and need to close. Please report Microsfot about this problem and send report". Is this due to the feature Netguard "On" ? Also please suggest whether Neguard "On" is safer or "Off" is safer?

Re: Clarification about Netguard

Hi cashok84,

The McAfee Firewall now includes a function called Net Guard. This new function uses McAfee's TrustedSource service to maintain a repository of known good and known bad domain names and IP addresses.  If you try to go to a known bad website or address, Net Guard will protect you by blocking the connection.
