Can't monitor applications because "Ignore local traffic" option is inactive

Started by Sean

I am trying to see what applications use the most data on my laptop. When I go to the apps page it says I need to click the checkbox "Ignore local traffic within the LAN." When I go to settings however the check box is faded and I cannot check it. How do I make it to where I am able the check it off?

"Ignore local traffic" option can be inactive for one of the following reasons:
  • You are using the portable edition. This feature is unavailable in the portable build. Use the installer instead; or
  • Antivirus or a similar product prevented the LAN traffic filtering driver from being installed; or
  • You had chosen not to install the LAN traffic filtering driver at the time of installation, which disabled this feature.
Hope this helps.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
