Network drive connection blocking McAfee

I just purchased and downloaded the McAfee antivirus Protection/internet security 2019 this afternoon. After I installed it my network drives were blocked. I uninstalled it and I could then access my network drives. I installed it once more and the same thing happened. I tried accessing the settings and network connection to add the network drives, but it still blocked them. Why??? The ONLY reason I purchased this software was because I was having an issue with Windows Defender firewall blocking one particular app (Sonos Controller). I don't understand why McAfee has to be so proactive that it blocks EVERYTHING. Unless I can understand how to fix this "blocking" issue, I will no doubt uninstall it for good and chalk up this $13 program as a big mistake and go back to WIndows Defender. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Network drive connection blocking McAfee

This issue sounds strange. Do you have some kind of proxy enabled?
