Virtual Machine. Almost all internet traffic is blocked by the CE program that is installed on the host computer.

I have a desktop that is running Windows 7 and have recently created a VM on it that is running Windows 10.  The covenant eyes program that is installed on the host computer running Windows 7 is causing a security warning and preventing almost all internet traffic on the VM unless the site is explicitly on the the allowed site.

I don't know if this issue could be easily fixed, but at the very least, there should be an expedited way to request a site to be allowed.  I don't want to have to send a text/call with every site that I'd like unblocked.

Do you have the filtering feature enabled? If so try setting it to a higher age level. VM's are flagged because of the potential for them to work-around Covenant Eyes by running a browser in the VM.
If you go to your System Tray and right click on the Covenant Eyes icon and select Dashboard you can see what sites your computer is reaching out to. 
If you need to allow a site sites can be allowed on under your account

I have a similiar issue on my laptop. If I close the lid (entering sleep mode) and reopen the lid, often I cannot access any websites unless I log out and log back in, which reinitializes CE. Then I can maneuver the internet.
