Unable to access internet via Firefox on XP machine after some message from McAphee, although can access via Internet Explorer. Solution?
My wife noticed that she got a message from McAfee (unremembered) just before the problem started, and that a green McAfyestee search window appeared on her yahoo e-mail account shortly thereafter.

I am unable to get the Troubleshooting Information from the XP computer to this one. If you need specific information, let me know.
The Firefox version is 3.6.9; McAfee SiteAdvisor is 3.1; Java Console 6.0.21 and below
First Solution refers to McAfee Security Center, but only item under McAfee is Mc... Virus Plus; 2nd reference is to a blank page.
Check the McAfee AntiVirus plus settings, the approach should be similar to that for McAfee Internet Security to see if it has settings to block applications.
