I've got a strange problem. My computer freezes overnight. Usually, after I leave my computer on and go back home (or away from desk at an extended time), my computer freezes up.
Seems to be a Zone Alarm problem. I got an error message saying that True Vector had crashed.
When I tried to access any other program- I got the error message
"Windows cannot access the specified device.path.or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
So I can't access any programs from the START/Programs section (leftside of the taskbar).
But I was able to bring up jpg files for viewing... and i could delete files.
I was worried my system got hacked so I immediately turned off my modem and pulled it off.
Only solution was to reboot. Then everything seems ok now.
My desktop system is a P4 Prescott, 1 gig Ram, running Windows XP, Zone Alarm Pro, (all patches and updates carried out on a regular basis), and running uTorrent 1.6. No wireless access.
I'm running it on an ADSL connection 512mb download (128mb upload). Modem is is Siemens Speedstream 4200.
Basically, after I was running uTorrent - went out for lunch/dinner- came back and couldn't access/run my programs, couldn't do ctrl-alt-del. I was able to access jpg files and view them. But I couldn't run any programs, nor could I bring up uTorrent/ZA from the right taskbar section onto the screen
As for background programs- the only other program I'm running is uTorrent for distribution of company files and data.
Has anyone else experienced the same problem?
