    Less than a week ago I got a new laptop with McAfee installed on it. As with any new antivirus software, I have allowed the things that I use the most to pass through the filter. However, I allowed IRC, yet it keeps blocking it again. I go into my VirusScan console to unblock the IRC, and no more than 5 minutes later, IRC is blocked again. I have tried unchecking the IRC boxes, removing them from the list, and even altering the ports it covers. All in vain. Please help me.

    Thanks in advance,
    Swimbaby

    have u checked the irc faq page to see if the prob. is with that not mcafee?

    To check engine and DAT

    1. Right click t M icon
    2. Select Virus Scan
    3. Click About.
    4. Tell me what it says.
