Re: i need help please firewall blocking risky connetions

im getting similar alerts from trusted sites and just now i had macfee pop up with the warning window "WHOA there where are you going?!" when i tried to go on bbc news!. something is screwy with mcafee since the last update it had. are you running firefox brandy?

Re: i need help please firewall blocking risky connetions

The whoa popup I thought was Site advisor. Net guard does flag Steam servers a lot though not recently. These were different Ip addresses each time I just added them as allowed as I trusted Steam. Depends on whether these were sites you know are safe.

If it blocked them and you were not expecting them Mcafee is working as it should. I get the normal netguard popups 1-2 times a week.

To be sure run getsusp

HERE.

and see if it finds anything amiss.

Re: i need help please firewall blocking risky connetions

nothing shows up in the getsusp tool peacekeeper...

im willing to write this whole thing off as a new update being a bit overzealous til it's more refined. i was affected by that xp update that marked certain essential files as malicious :\ luckly to get my pc working after that.

Yes just monitor it and the firewall logs. I rarely now get netguard to popup a warning. Relax don't remind me of that dreaded April update
