    On-line banking - try this - Open FF Settings &gt; Advanced &gt; Anti-spyware &gt; Block programs that secretly record keystrokes &gt; switch off &quot;Always&quot; to &gt; Only in allegedly secure sessions (https) &lt; dot this part.<hr>Thomas&gt;John, you will have to re-examine your pc security set-up...
    Just One, Not Two -- Never use two
    'software firewalls'
    at the same time. Completely uninstall one before installing another. Use the vendor's uninstall utility/ 'removal tool'
    or if not available use the Windows XP add/remove software tool in the control panel. You can add/ use a 'hardware firewall' included
    in a
    Wired Router, Wireless Router or Broadband Gateway with your ZoneAlarm firewall.


    At a minimum, home computers need to have personal soft-firewall and anti-malware software installed and kept up-to-date to find and remove viruses, spyware, Trojans and other malware. A home network that uses a wired or wireless router with firewall (hard-firewall)
    features provides additional protection.<hr>Just One, Not Two -- Never use two anti-virus products at the same time. Completely uninstall one before installing another. Use the vendor's uninstall utility/ 'removal tool'
    or if not available, use the Windows XP add/remove software tool in the control panel.[*][*]Caution: Many of today's hybrid anti-spyware software may now include anti-virus protection; be aware they may conflict with your main anti-virus software. Please read the details of your chosen anti-spyware protection. New hybrid &quot;Anti-spyware with Anti-virus software&quot;
    :
    like Webroot AntiVirus with AntiSpyware or PCTools SpywareDoctor with Integrated AntiVirus, or SunbeltSoftware CounterSpy with VIPRE, PCTools ThreatFire, paid versions of
    Lavasoft's Ad-Aware Plus + Ad-Aware Pro,
    etc.<hr>[*]You have some security software conflicts - :0[*][*]You have ZAX - firewall (#1), anti-virus (#1), anti-spyware, Parental Control (#1),
    etc.[*]AVG Suite - firewall (#2), anti-virus (#2), anti-spyware, link scanner toolbar, etc.[*]Ad-Aware - if you have the paid version? - it now includeds an anti-virus (#3) ?[*]Netnanny Home Suite - Parental Control (#2)<ul>[/list][/list]

    Sometimes more, only gives you more problems. It would be nice &quot;if&quot; we could add firewalls and add anti-virus together - but it doesn't work like that. Firewalls and anti-virus need to 'hook' into your system and having two more 'types' of security software will conflict with each other and usually cause some sort of 'malfunction' and/ or
    strain the pc's rescources.
    My suggestion
    - if you want to let ZoneAlarm Extreme Security to do it's job optimally - &quot;properly&quot; un-install all of AVG Suite, Ad-Aware - hopefully it's the 'free' version not the paid version which includes an anti-virus - you may wish to properly un-install this as well - why - if you use ForceField for all/ most of your
    web browsing - there is really now need for Ad-Aware scanning. ForceField by design will remove any and all adware/ malware/ tracking cookies when you close the FF web page.
    Have a little more 'faith' in ZA Extreme Security to the job of securing your pc. Click here &gt; http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2341826,00.asp
    Why ForceField private browser can't intialize: it could be AVG blocking proper install/ functioning
    , Ad-Aware blocking proper install/ functioning, or
    could even be Netnanny ??<hr>After you
    properly un-install some of the 'excess' security software - you may try to reset ZA with this...
    Try resetting your database.
    1.) Hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys together
    2.) Right click on the ZA icon near your clock
    3.) Choose 'Reset' from the box that comes up
    4.) Choose Yes on the Reset Settings dialog box
    5.) When prompted, choose OK to restart your system
    6.) Follow the on screen configuration prompts after reboot
