The site which provides tracking details for visitors to my own website has been blocked by McAfee LiveSafe's firewall.  None of my browsers can connect to that site, unless I turn off the firewall.  However, the browsers are able to connect to all other sites without any issue.  I don't know how that site became blocked, but I'd like to now how to unblock it.

You can open up the firewall console and add the website to "Trusted sites".  This will be under "Web and Email" on the console.  Let me know if you have any questions, thanks!

The solution was turn off "Net Guard" under Firewall settings.  Thank you.
