Hi @Gshock,

Greetings from McAfee.

Torrents are illegal file transfer and distribution programs and is the reason it is having conflict with McAfee VPN. We recommend you not to download any files from them as they might harm your PC.

Please don't use McAfee. Windows Defender is more than enough protection against viruses. It's just security theater. Most computer security products are a waste of money nowadays, and they deliberately advertise in such a way that tricks the consumer into believing they are not safe without product xyz.

Their VPN is most likely garbage as well. For torrents, you have three options. AirVPN, OVPN, and Mullvad.

Hi @Gshock 

Greetings from McAfee.

Since torrents are not legitimate it is normal that McAfee will continue to block it. We do not have an alternate solution for this.
