Installation Issues (Free version; 7.0.708.00 on Windows XP)
I upgraded from version 7.0.337.00 to 7.0.408.00 and ran into two issues:
1) Windows wouldn't shut down. I left it overnight, and it was still on the shut down screen in the morning;
2) I couldn't connect to my DSL ISP by starting my browser (Firefix). To connect, I needed to start Outlook Express, which would attempt to connect to my DSL ISP to download email (sometimes successfully, sometimes not), connect to my dial-up ISP (creating a phone connection) and download email, and then reconnect to my DSL ISP and download emails from accounts that it hadn't attempted to connect to previously. At that point, my browser would be able to connect to my DSL ISP.
Going back to the previous version (7.0.337.00) seems to have fixed both issues. According to the about screen, the Zone Alarm Driver version is still 7.0.408.00.
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002, Service Pack 2.
Are these known issues that I couldn't find, or do I need to wait for another release?
