Thread: New Network Added and I can't delete or block it.

    Default New Network Added and I can't delete or block it.

    Hello:
    I'm new to this board ... but 2 weeks ago, my motherboard was replaced by Dell.
    Afterwards, I booted up and my Zonelabs immediately found a new network.
    Stupid me ... thinking this was probably my own network that my new motherboard didn't recognize, added it.
    Now I see in my Zonelab site lists these sites that I do not go to.
    Zonelabs will not allow me to block or delete the network because it says it is an Active Network.
    I am wondering if this is how I am all of a sudden getting all these Trojans that I have to remove.
    The IP address is 192.168.10/255.255.255.0
    Am I going crazy?
    Could this be my own network, or somebody trying to link in?

    Any help would be much appreciated!!
    Thanks!!

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Catie,
    I believe you ment 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 (not 192.168.10)192.168.1.0 is the IP Address of your Router and is valid, active , and OK.....255.255.255.0 is the Subnet Mask for 192.168.1.0 and covers the entire range (192.168.1.0 to 192.168.255.255) and is valid, active, and OK.....
    As for the Trojans, they were most likely already present and ZoneAlarm is removing them.....
    Regarding the site list and unwanted sites, you need to set up some rules, try this:
    DoubleClick ZoneAlarm Icon/Privacy/Main -thenClick on the 'Custom' button located on the top right side and enter this setup:
    CookiesAllow session cookiesAllow persistent cookiesBlock 3rd party cookiesDisable web bugsRemove private header informationExpire cookies immediately after receiptShow Privacy Advisor
    Ad BlockingAllow banner/skyscraper adsBlock pop-up/pop-underAllow animationAd Void Control nothing
    Mobile CodeAllow javascriptAllow scripts (vbscript, etc.)Allow embedded objects (java, ActiveX) (by default ActiveX is blocked by the Browser)Allow mimi-type integrated objects
    Now.....for any site
    you want to block the rules that 'Custom Privacy Settings' allow,
    just edit in the 'Site List' and clear the Cache.....After any site is edited in the 'Site List' that site and its rules remain and are not deleted after a reboot or any editing to the 'Custom Privacy Settings'
    Tip: When editing the 'Site List' edit from right to left then click on the 'Options' button located in the lower right hand corner, and further edit the rules.Then clear the CacheThe edited sites will remain in the 'Site List' until deleted by the user.....
    After you have setup the 'Custom Privacy Settings' click on the 'Sites' Tab and delete all the sites in the list and then clear the Cache.....
    Hope this helps,stupefy

    "255.255.255.0 is the Subnet Mask for 192.168.1.0 and covers the entire range (192.168.1.0 to 192.168.255.255) and is valid, active, and OK....."

    Actually the subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 translates into only 254 useable hosts or by using the previous example of 192.168.1.0, it becomes 192.168.1.0 to 192.168.1.254.

    255.255.255.0 (CIDR is /24) subnet is a "Class C" network or just 254 domains.

    whereas the
    255.255.0.0 (CIDR is /16) subnet is a "Class B" network or 192.168.0.0-192.168.255.254
    255.0.0.0 (CIDR is /8) subnet is a "Class A" network or 192.168.0.0-192.255.255.254
