    Default unwanted connections

    When use internet explorer, sometimes I check the dos netstat and see connections going to advertising agencies, or other destinations that I would like to permanently block. So I copy the site from the netstat command and paste it into my zonealarm blocked sites list. This doesnt seem to work. I notice the connections are still there the next day or later. How can I block a site so that they cannot establish a connection on my machine when Im surfing the net?
    example netstat commandTCP

    Hi notsurehowtoget,




















    You probably have to complete a database reset, as Zone Alarm at times seems to forget settings.
    The only problem with this, is the fact you will have to put back all your configurations in Zone Alarm, but it should fix your problem, if not PLEASE post back.

    Now I'm thinking that your ZA database is not reading the settings properly. Try resetting your ZA database and see if that will fix it. When you reset, it will act like a new install and you'll need to grant permissions anew. Reset the database this way; you will lose your customizations and will need to reconfigure Zone Alarm.

    1. Boot your computer into the Safe Mode. {Instructions if needed}
    2. Navigate to the c:\windows\internet logs folder.
    3. Delete the backup.rdb and iamdb.rdb files in the folder.
    4.Reboot into the normal mode.



















    Hope this info has helped you.



















    Thank you for your time and have a nice evening!
