#1 If this is your personal PC. You should have your firewall settings to your specifications. This would include any tweaks needed to run software that needed access. Instructions would have been included with the software.
#2 I don't know of any legit site that ask you to click here, to make changes to you firewall settings.
#3 If this is a company PC. Have your sys admin check it immediately.
#4 The are too many wildcard variables in the website URL for my taste.. IE wildcard.wildcard.wildcard.actual site.net
