    I haven't been able to download any files for several days. The following message appears: "No connections could be made because the target machine actively refused them". What can it be?

    No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.” Generally, it happens that something is preventing a connection to the port or hostname. Either there is a firewall blocking the connection or the process that is hosting the service is not listening on that specific port

    Actually, AdGaurd was completely blocking my wife to log onto Facebook... that was traumatizing (yawn)
