I am using ZoneAlarm Pro 7.0.337.000 in Windows XP Home.
On starting ZoneAlarm, either when booting the PC or after manually shutting down, only the first site visited gets added to the site list in 'Privacy'. After that, ZoneAlarm thinks that all sites are that first site, and uses the privacy settings for that site. For example, having cleared out the ZA .idb files, I start my PC and visit www.fanfiction.net. Privacy Advisor informs me it has blocked cookies, private headers and code
(as required by the main privacy settings), and when I click on Privacy Advisor to see more information, I see fanfiction has been added as the only site in the site list, with the current default privacy settings.
All fine so far. I permit code for fanfiction, login to fanfiction, everything works.
I then come to the Zonelabs website. Privacy Advisor tells me that it has blocked cookies and private headers (NOT code), and asking for more information still shows only the fanfiction site. Code is now enabled for every subsequent site I visit. Even adding sites by hand has no effect, ZoneAlarm is convinced that the only site I'm visiting is fanfiction, and those are the settings it uses.
If I shut down ZoneAlarm, restart it, and come to the Zonelabs site first, ZoneAlarm thinks that all the sites I visit after that are the Zonelabs site.
I have cleared out ZoneAlarm's .idb files in safe mode, uninstalled and re-installed ZoneAlarm, made sure no other software is blocking cookies or code.
NOD32 virus checker has web access protection enabled, but that seems to be looking for recognised threats rather than blocking wholesale. Windows firewall is turned off.
Any ideas how I fix this? Thanks.
