While I try to download anthing from internet, it says ''Your IDM can not download the file.The firewall may block it.''so how can I solve it? i., it says ' you may have a firewall...

file sharing and the internet using mulible ports to complete a download of files to your computer. if you had purchased the IDM program then you need to contact their tech support to find what ports are being used by their program. once your get the port numbers then you set them up to pass through your firewall. if have problems configuring your firewall then you need contact the maker of the firewall that you are using for tech support from them.

My internet download manager is not working as it is blocked. How can I unblock it?

Hi, go into your firewall program and look for a blocked programs folder and remove or untick the download manager program.
Can you elaborate more on what your download manager is called and what firewall you are using?
eg are you using Zonealarm as your firewall or are you using a Microsoft program?
Are you using Free Download manager or something else?

Fatal error

Turn off Windows XP firewall or click "allow" in the window and retry.

It's a window telling you that Windows firewall have noticed that CS1.6 is trying to connect to the internet and it asks if you want to allow it or not.When you press "keep blocking" you tell your firewall to stop CS1.6 from using internet.

You can't play online without using the net, right? :)

If you are running ActiveSync 4.0 or later and personal firewall software on your personal computer, please add ActiveSync to the firewall program’s exception list. (Firewall software, such as Sygate Personal Firewall, TrendMicro PC-cillin Internet Security 2005, Norton Personal Firewall, McAfee Personal Firewall, or Zone Alarm Security Suite may block synchronization.) Refer to the documentation that came with your firewall program to determine how to add ActiveSync 4.0 or later to the program’s exception list. To further troubleshoot a firewall application and enable ActiveSync 4.0 or later
