I have ZoneAlarm Security Suite version 7.0.462.000
intel core2 1.86GHz with 992 MB RAM, running XP home edition service pack 2. With IE 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2
When ZA is running, left clicking certain buttons in certain web pages does nothing, like it is disabled. If I shut down ZA and IE6 and then restart IE6 without ZA running, the very same buttons react properly to left clicking.
An example of the sort of button resisting activation is the Google Search button in my Gmail. The search mail button beside it works perfectly, but the google search button does not react when ZA is running. Another example, and this is pretty ironic, as I was registering for this forum, the hotlink in the confirmation email resisted left click to activate. I had to right click and choose open in new window to get here!
I have come across quite a few hotlinks and buttons in various web pages which are immune to left clicking whilst zone alarm is running.I thought it may be Java related, but I have seen non Java hotlinks disabled as well.
I would like to find out how to enable left clicking for all situations.
If this is a glitch and not fixable, I will be unistalling Zone Alarm, as it is not acceptable to have this random restriction.
p.s. Those who wish to suggest I install another browser to fix this problem, I will head you off now by saying IE isn't perfect but I like it enough to want to continue with it for the moment.
