I've had some security concerns recently so I installed ZA. It worked fine at first with settings set to High, but then one time I couldn't connect to a wireless network which I had previously used without a problem. I had the same problem with a second network which I had also used with settings on High.
After restarting the modem and trying other things without success, I reduced the settings to Medium, and this allowed me to connect. A few days later I happened to open My Network Connections, and saw about 15 folders in there. All of them disappeared after a second or two except one called Administrator, which disappeared after about another second.
There was, or should have been, nobody else on the network at the time
- I was the only person in that building. The day after this incident, I was able to connect to the same network, and the other one that I had had issues with,
with the security settings on High. I have frequently opened My Network Places since this incident, with the ZA at various settings or even swithched off, and nothing has shown up.
What is the most likely explanation for this?
