Games and other programs can not access the Internet
August 10, 2011 6:34pm CST
I just wanted to install World of Warcraft and X-Fire. Now, the following problems: 1st At X-Fire I can not sign, because all the graphics can not be downloaded from the Internet. The code to register will not be displayed. (My Internet does work!) 2nd When I was install WOW it was reported that reading was a failure of information from the Internet. Why are my programs can not access the Internet? I know this may now be almost impossible to find an answer to my problem but I just hope again.

Yes it's hard to diagnose without seeing the symptoms and only with a forum post My guess is that you have a firewall installed that is blocking the connection. Often firewalls are preconfigured to allow traffic on browsers and not most other programs that may need to connect, like the games. If that's the case, you can try first disabling the firewall completely and see if the game can download, and if so, reenable the firewall, adding an exception to the executable or port it uses.
