Question by fatboysohungry: how do i give programs access to the Internet?
i have a program that when i run it reads:

“The program was unable to initialize and start. This is usually due to a firewall program blocking access to the internet or loopback connections to the local machine. Please allow the progam access to the internet and restart th program.”

Any advice would be greatly apreciated.

If you have a firewall :

Open the firewall and go to allow / settings / programs etc
Look for your program or add it manualy and click allow / grant access

For windows firewall :

Start>Control Panel > Windows Security > Firewall and go to exceptions and look for the program and check it.

Sorry not much I can do without Operating Sys and Firewall prog name

Good Luck ,
