BT – the main telephone company of Britain – also offer McAfee as a security solution if you get their broadband, although they brand it with their name. However, very few people actually use BT for internet.

It's also preinstalled on all Dell computers – and these days, a six month free suscription at minimum is required with your purchase – you do NOT have the option to remove it before receiving the computer. Dell say this is to protect the inexperienced, and make sure you're safe from the start, but it's well known that McAfee is weak protection at best.

You know what's funny? No program besides my Google Chrome can connect to the internet. Its not just the GOTD Setup. Now that I have the MSE (thanks karen!) and the default Windows Firewall up and running, I'm just going to completely uninstall McAfee. I'll possibly re-download and try it again (just because its free) in the future. So, if I get a virus that kills my computer, its been a pleasure everyone.

Wait!  If nothing can connect to the internet, try resetting your Internet Explorer options.  Chrome (used to) ignore(s) these.

You're a genius!!!! It's working!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everything is working fine. I no longer get that error and now I can get GOTDs.
