    Default ZoneAlarm free flags up tinyURL.com.

    Hi there,
    For years I have been using tinyURL.com to reduce long website names but today ZA flagged up a warning about the URL being unsafe.
    I deleted it off my PC, cleaned up all
    cookies, etc.
    and, using Internet Explorer,
    Googled tinyURL.com
    to download a fresh version.

    The address was ticked as safe by ZA when the search completed,
    but when I clicked on to the
    link
    the same ZA warning screen appeared again and stopped my access to it.

    The address given for that warning page
    is:


    http://www.zonealarm.com/store/conte...cd=27-jan-2002
    Thinking this could be a false positive I then sent a message about this
    to the address link given
    on the above page.


    It was returned unreceived with the following details:
    The original message was received at Sat, 6 Sep 2008 19:39:42 +0300
    from cale-as.checkpoint.com [194.29.32.215]

    Not sure what is the problem here but I would be grateful if someone could help me on this.
    I would like to continue with the .com version if it's
    at all possible!
    Thanks in advance for any help or explanation
    given to me.
    Kind regards,Ray

    Hi SlyFox (Guru),
    Although I
    am a registered
    subscriber to the
    ZA Internet Security Suite software,
    which is still valid, I have nevertheless
    opted to use the ZA free version.
    This version is: 7.0.483.000 and has all current
    updates.
    A personal choice I admit,
    but
    because of this I cannot fully
    complete the form at your link.
    Thanks for the help anyway; I will now have to use tinyURL.co.uk for now.
    Kind regards,Ray
