    __________________________________________________ ___________________________

    By clicking on Enabling the Automatic lock on the&quot; HELP &quot; panel.You can read the same I'm reading :

    The automatic Internet lock protects your computer if you leave it connected to the Internet for long periods even when you're not actively using network or Internet resources.

    When the lock engages, only traffic initiated by programs to which you have given pass-lock permission is allowed. All traffic to and from your computer is stopped, including DHCP messages, or ISP heartbeats, used to maintain your Internet connection. As a result, you may lose your Internet connection.

    etc..................

    Good Luck
