Firewall blocking my school's website(s)

I can open the website (not secured) just fine over my school's WiFi network on any of my devices that doesn't have McAfee installed. However, on my laptop, which have this antivirus application installed, it detects the website as "malicious", hence the firewall (configured by the McAfee) blocked me from browsing it

I've tried disabling FireWall and Real-time scanning, also listed the web address as "allowed" but none of these worked. Any help? Other than uninstalling this app.
