Additional Software Requirements
Diskeeper requires .NET 4. If .Net 4 is not installed on your system, Diskeeper
will attempt to download and install it for you. A reboot may be required due to
the .Net installation.
A Note About Firewalls
As a normal part of its operation, the Diskeeper Service (DkService.exe)
acts as a Windows service on your system. If you are running a hardware or software
firewall, you may see messages indicating Diskeeper Service is trying to act as
a Windows service. These messages are expected; you can safely allow these events.
This functionality is designed to allow for support for network operations (e.g.
Remote Control) via Diskeeper Administrator.
You may also be notified that Diskeeper is trying to access the Internet. It is
important to note that Diskeeper does not access the Internet (except when you specifically
use the Check for Updates feature or you opt in to send performance data for analysis),
but it does use Windows mechanisms that may trigger these alerts from your firewall.
Again, these messages are expected and you can safely allow the events. If networkability
or automatic update checking is not required, you can safely disable this.
