I tried the Free Zone Alarm and liked it. Last week I was lucky enough to buy a new PC running XP and downloaded a trial of Zone Alarm Pro. Quick as a flash I got rid of it and tried the Free version again only to find no matter what I did, with Zone ALarm turned on I could not access the internet. I turned it off, went on the internet and then turned it on...it stopped me fromm moving and in fact had blocked access again. I use Thunderbird/Firefox both of which respond happily to Windows Firewall, so am stuffed as to why despite giving them both the proper rights, Zone Alarm blocks access. I have removed the program and reloaded it twice from different sources (a PC mag CD and off the internet). My original like of ZA is wilting despite knowing it is a good program. Oh, I have cable DSL which worked fine with my old W98 PC and Thunderbird/Firefox and the Free ZA....Any tips pleeeeease!
