Since I installed the latest version of ZApro firewall, I notice that there are no fwin alerts in the firewall log. Program alerts are there, fwout alerts are there, but not one fwin ('firewall in') alert. I know internet traffic hasn't changed in a few minutes or hour, so it looks like either incoming traffic is not being detected, is all being passed through as safe, or is not being logged properly. Is this a ZApro problem, or could some malware be causing this error? I ran AVG antivirus, it didn't find a problem.
I also noticed that the programs winlogon.exe and userinit logon (windows system programs) also started to ask permission to use the internet browser to connect to the internet, and before they didn't do this. Before, it would just be the internet browser that would ask for permission.
Also, how do you a complete uninstall of this version (including going into the registry)? The installer included with the latest version doesn't do it. I tried the /clean suggestion, and that wasn't really a full uninstall either, there was something still in the registry. (I know this because I uninstalled and tried to install a different version of ZA, and it used the ver 6.5 serial number from my previous install even though I didn't input that.)
Help! I've never had the Zonealarm firewall do this before.
Any firewall and windows expert have any suggestions?
Re: Firewall alerts
Hi zafwAbout your first question of not having incoming attempts blocked in the log, my question is;are you behind a NAT modem or a router? because if this is the case those devices acts like a hardware firewall blocking the packets that don't get your computer.About your second question if you want to revert to a previous version and want to uninstall, do a clean uninstall and then a clean install of the version you prefer. I leave you two links, one about doing a clean uninstall and a second to verify that everything has been removed.<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/b...d=23496#M23496<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/b...message.id=103<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">Best regards
