    Default window xp [professional] security update kb951748 KILLS Zone Alarm (free) Personal Firewall.

    This is either a new exploit or a buggy Microsoft software fix. IN ANY EVENT,
    the updated system is now incompatible with zone alarm firewall.

    This is a BREACH!

    I spoke with my ISP; Verizon. They tracked the problem down by disabling my firewall.
    They were at least helpful enough to enable the Microsoft firewall which I have no confidence
    in and believe is an inferior product.

    Two calls to Microsoft and attempting to chat with Microsoft support at about 4 am EST was
    unsuccessful in resolving the issue. I got the typical run around.

    First, Verizon gave me 800-936-5700 to call; then I got 866-PC-SAFETY;
    after talking to a rep there for an hour I was finally told that his was
    not "a virus or spyware" problem.

    I have yet to call another department at Microsoft [800-936-5700] for
    free support. They open at 5am-9pm PT.

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