1. In McAfee Personal Firewall, Select Personal Firewall Plus.
2. Click View the Internet Application List.
3. Right-click the name of the program you wish to allow and select Allow Full Access.
If you don’t see the name of the program listed, click Allow New Application and enter the full path of where the application is loaded. Example: C:\Program Files\AOL Instant Messenger\aim.exe
4. Close McAfee Personal Firewall.
