How can i make my firewall allow google chrome?

by on May 27, 2013

I accidentally clicked on block when it came to downloading something on google chrome (or something like that) and now when i open it it gives me Error 138, and i uninstalled chrome and reinstalled it but it still has that problem. I went into the firewall and tried to allow it but i don’t know how to do that. Also i have an expired McAffee anti virus which still gives me annoying popups and Avast antivirus.

go to your firewall, I don’t know the windows you are using but the are almost the same procedure but this is for windows 7.

go to start -> control panel -> click on windows firewall -> by the left side you will see turn windows on/off click on it ->then read and check the options you want to turn on the firewall.

for the expired virus uninstall it by going to control panel programms and click on it and uninstall it. do this if you do not have money to buy but i will advice you purchase one to protect your system.

after doing these if the issue continue restore you computer to what it was before these issue by going to control panel, windows firewall, by the left side panel you will see restore default or restore … click on it and follow the instructions.

Ok.. You have Mcaffee and Avast Installed.. BAD IDEA!

ONLY Ever have one antivirus installed or it WILL Cause problems.

Remove Mcafee ASAP! & Dont look back as avast is better.

What Blocked it… Mcaffee or avast?

Removing mcafee may let chrome run but..

On Avast & Mcafee enter the Event Log/Quarrentine.. Locate Chrome.. And Allow it past both Firewalls before deleting anything.

Then Remove Mcaffee and Also check windows firewall setings.

Hope it helps :)
