Unlock the Gateway to Seamless Browsing: Overcoming Internet Access Blocks on Chrome with K7 Antivirus
Check for browser extensions or plugins causing the block
If you are experiencing internet access being blocked on Chrome with K7 Antivirus, it could be due to browser extensions or plugins. To check for this issue, follow these steps:
1. Open Google Chrome.
2. Click on the three-dot menu in the top-right corner and select “More tools” > “Extensions.”
3. Disable all extensions by toggling the switch next to each one.
4. Refresh the webpage you were trying to access.
If the issue is resolved, re-enable your extensions one by one to identify the culprit. If the problem persists, it might be a firewall or antivirus software blocking the connection. Consider temporarily disabling K7 Antivirus or configuring its settings to allow internet access.
