    Firewall blocking GOOGLE, STEAM, SPOTIFY


    This started occurring a few weeks ago and my co-worker advised me to check out this site to seek any help.

    My google chrome all of a sudden stopped working, so I had uninstalled and attempted to reinstall it but it would give me the following error "Unable to connect to the internet. If you use firewall, please whitelist GoogleUpdate.exe"

    Also when I try to run GTA V through Steam it gives me this error "Error Code: -105" and says unable to connect to server.

    Spotify doesn't not pick up connection nor does my Nvidia Gerforce program.

    There are other programs that also have no connections but some programs like Internet Edge and Netflix work and I cant seem to figure out what the problem is, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    You can adjust the settings to your Firewall. Just go to administrative tools/Windows Firewall and poke around in the settings/options.

    I've tried disabling and re-enabling the firewall.
    Even tried to bypass said applications, but it still doesn't help. 😤

    Are you using the Windows Firewall?

    Does it work when disabled altogether?

    Yes I have the Windows Defender.

    When I disable it, nothing changes. Still gives me the same errors

    I asked about Windows Firewall - not Windows Defender.

    The 2 are very different...
