    Default Stop All Internet Activity does not work

    Whenever I select "Stop All Internet Activity" ZA turns into a red padlock.
    However my modem continues to show data passing between Internet and Computer. I thought that this should stop everything from accessing the internet.
    I am on RoadRunner and have WindowsXP Pro

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    Modem or router? Is this local IP or internet IPs? Inbound or outbound directions?


    The ZA database could be corrupted. It may need to be reset and let it start over. Reset this way:

    Boot your computer into the Safe Mode
    Navigate to the c:\windows\internet logs folder
    Delete the backup.rdb and iamdb.rdb files in the folder
    Clean the Recycle Bin
    Reboot into the normal mode
    ZA will be just like new with no previous settings or data

    This is a modem.
    Internet (RoadRunner)
    Data light flashes on modem.
    Can't tell if it is inbound or outbound
    Deleting those files did nothing.
    The modem data lights continued to flashand the modem PC connection light is on.
    To me this indicates that the PC isconnected to the internet and is allowing traffic through.
    ZA does not stop it.

    Find out what is happening.
    [*]Type command in the Windows Run box.[*]Type "netstat -b 5 > activity.txt" and press enter. After a few minutes, press Ctrl+C.[*]Type "activity.txt" on the command line to open the log file in the notepad.

    The file activity.txt will create a log of all process that made a connection to the Internet in the last two minutes. It will show which process connected to which website in that time period. All including the web browsers (like iexplore.exe or opera.exe), the log will also show your IM clients, download managers, email programs or any software that requires a net connection.

    Another suggestion is use a packet sniffer such as wireshark.

    There is a possibility of a rootkit - rootkits can avoid detection by afirewall. Troyans injected in the TCP/IP stack will avoid detection by a firewall. Certain web browser toolbars and BHO will avoid detection by a firewall.
