Firewalls

A firewall is a program designed to guard incoming and outgoing connections to the Internet. Its usually part of an Internet suite or security programs. While most firewall programs self-configure themselves or learn from your online activity, they may prevent PC Booster from connecting to our servers for live updates or to verify your registration serial number.

A firewall may ask your permission if a program needs or attempts to connect to the Internet. In order for PC Booster to activate or download updates, you must grant it access to the Internet through your firewall.

Note: In some cases, temporarily disabling a firewall does not stop all of its function and it may still prevent applications such as PC Booster from connecting to the Internet.

Which firewall program are you using?
