Lately, occasionally, after booting up my browser (IE7) can't connect to any websites.
I can ping various sites like yahoo.com, ibm.com, etc., but can't connect to sites.
I haven't tried other browsers.
MS Live Messenger also can't connect.
What fixes it is:1. opening MS Live Messenger &
running the connection troubleshooter2.
finds a problems with the ports &
reports there's either a proxy or firewall problem3. let the Messenger troubleshooter do a repair
That does it.
Messenger then connects ok and I can then connect to websites.
I can't figure out what's causing this.
I'm running XP Pro SP2 with ZA Security Suite 7.0.462 and all ZA and MS updates.
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
