I have several programs that are being blocked from accessing the internet (i.e. iTunes store, SuperAntiSpyware definition updates, yahoo widgets, mcafee antivirus update definitions, video downloads, etc.)

I've added all programs to my McAfee firewall exceptions and granted full access for each program. I have no issues accessing internet through browser.

I'm running Win XP SP3.

Any ideas what is blocking programs from internet?

Could it possibly be your Parents Parental Controls?

I have parental controls turned off.... A few other things to note. I've manually updated all definitions for McAfee Antivirus/Firewall & SuperAntiSpyware. After doing so, I ran full scans with both programs and nothing was detected.

One more thing..... the issue is user account specific. My username is the admin, but blocking these programs. I gave another user account admin rights and it has no issues.
