I am trying ZASS again, having been frustrated and disappointed with it in the past. This time isn't going well either.
The current problem is that whenever I visit ebay.com, I get a bunch of "403 forbidden" messages in different spots on the home page, and, depending on which browser I use, I may get a series of blank.cgi, blank-2.cgi, etc. empty files opening in Notepad. Disabling ZASS makes this problem go away.
I searched this forum for "ebay" and "blank.cgi" and found no hits. I did find a number of matches with Google, and ZoneAlarm seemed to be implicated, but I could not find a solution. I have tried turning off ad blocking for ebay and allowing all cookies, but to no avail.
Also, is it true that ad blocking is either on or off - there is no ability to add strings to block as most other ad blocking products offer? The ad blocking that is there seems singularly ineffective in my tests.
I keep reading such glowing praise of ZASS, and I can't quite understand why. (Within the first five minutes after I had it installed, the TrueVector service aborted and I had to restart it manually.)
