McAfee and Windows 10 update

Friend of mine is running Windows 10 on a Dell all in one. The last update, I think June 1, prevented her from being able to get to the Internet. It recognized the router, said there was Internet Access, but would not load pages. I went through all Windows fixes and nothing worked. She called a repair guy and the results was that McAfee was keeping it from working. He removed McAfee and it worked. I had tried, wireless, hard wire, alternate wifi. nothing worked. Changed DNS, nope.

Anyway, if this hits you, you might try removing your antivirus.

If it is after 5:00 when I post I reserve the right to disavow anything I posted.

My guess it was probably the firewall with McAfee.
