  • What happens when you click to allow? OneCare will block any unrecognized program and prompt you. If you allow, it is still blocked for the previous attempt, so you need to start the program that needs access a second time for it to have access to the Internet after allowing it.
    If you have done this and it is still blocked, try restrting the PC. If that doesn't help, you should contact support.
