Security history blocked 2 sites, but actually blocked 4 good sites

I just downloaded and installed Mcafee and it came up with a report that it blocked 2 ip addresses under Firewall. As per your help pages to find these should go to Security history to see what was blocked. When I viewed the report there were 4 ip addresses. One was from Mcafee and three from Microsoft. In the short time I registered to post this the firewall still says it only blocked 2, Under PC Security it still says "We protected you from 2 risky connections so far... see what we blocked" When I click on that it has far more than only 2 ip addresses. Obviously, either you are not blocking all of these and I want to see those two OR your program is not designed properly and not stating all that is blocked. Which is it? I'd like to see what is actually blocked because the first report of 4 IP addresses obviously should not be blocked.
