Safety minder is messing with (the game) MINECRAFT
When I open the main Minecraft.exe, the update page does not show up. Instead, at the top of the screen it says: <html><body><font color="#808080"><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><center>Failed to update news<br>java.net.SocketException: Permission denied: connect</center></font></body></html>
My kids has an account with no adm. rights. If I log into my adm. account, even I can't play the game.
Uninstalling NSM, and MINECRAFT works again.
Thanks and regards,
