McAfee Network Agent Blocking Web Browser

  Kilty 10:19 01 Jul 2010

I have McAfee Antivirus/Internet Security running on my PC and it is unable to surf using any web browser. I get a "not able to find page" for every web page I try. I am connected as Skype is able to connect. But, when I stop McAfee Network Agent in Services, I can surf without any problem. Do I need to reinstall McAfee, as it sounds like the program may have become corrupt?

Thanks in advance for any help given.

You could try a 'System restore' to before this started happening. If that doesn't sort it look into McAfee's 'Settings', see if you can find anything related to what's happening.

If all else fails ask your here

Any luck? Some feedback would be nice.

Graphicool1, sorry I didnt post a reply sooner. McAfee was a mess, I rolled the system back to an earlier point, no luck. I tried to contact McAfee and use their Assistant tool, no luck. In the end I have removed it and all its components and started to use Avast, problem solved. Just have to try and get my money back for the licence!!

Thanks for your help.
