[Windows] "level 2" blocks everything inc. Chrome with PluckEye Ext.

Hi there,

Even at "level 1" I have found PluckEye to be an invaluable tool in my own personal journey against problematic viewing and acting patterns.

I have so far managed *3 weeks* of a new more positive pattern of behaviour, thanks in no small part to PluckEye.

However, when I activate "level 2" (even WITHOUT NHB mode) it breaks the internet entirely for me. All sites appear as "unable to connect" or "offline" and non browser apps like PC Softphone also disconnect.

Even with the active Chrome browser that has PluckEye browser extension (Version 10.24.22 - allowed on All sites, all permissions given to the extension).

If anyone has any ideas on what I could be missing, please do drop me a line.

God bless,

I assume you restarted Chrome and it was still blocked.

It might be a conflict with other software. 

https://www.pluckeye.net/sysinspect.html

From https://www.pluckeye.net/readme-windows.txt :

1. On Windows and Mac OS X, installation level 2 is known to be
   partially or wholly incompatible with

   - Covenant Eyes
   - Net Nanny
   - Qustodio
   - BullGuard Antivirus
   - possibly other filters

   When installed along with any of these products, the Internet may
   become inaccessible (try restarting all browsers).  If problems
   persist, uninstall Pluckeye or one of the conflicting filters.
