Then McAfee presumably blocked it, so it is doing its job.

Run the ShieldsUp test from here:

In particular see if "All Service Ports" are stealthed (green).

Has your router got a firewall?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Your router should have a firewall.
You should periodically unplug and reset your router so that it acquires a new IP address dynamically from your ISP and that by randomizing like that, you reduce your vulnerability to those attacks.
Make sure that your computer(s) also acquire their local IP address dynamically from your router each day you turn them on (not fixed).
You should not use a computer plugged directly into a high speed modem (Cable, DSL, FIOS), you should use a router with a firewall.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
