Windows apps are forbidden from sending network traffic to the local computer(loopback). This loopback protection is provided by the Windows firewall service. AdFender runs as a local HTTP(S) proxy and because of the restriction, Windows apps may not work as expected when AdFender is configured as the system proxy. To overcome this issue, you could download and run the free EnableLoopback Utility
from Telerik. Run the utility and select the Windows apps that you want to exempt from loopback restrictions and click the "Save Changes" button.
