I had the usual bad luck while installing re-installing zonealarm pro, power failure.
The computer could boot up again but I has no access to internet or e-mail at all.
so removed zonealarm on the old fashion way, manual.
The only cul^prit I had was: unable to remove the legacy keys but as soon when vsmon
was disable, no problem.
This turnd out to be the right approach , meaning, e-mail and internet did work so
tried to re-install Zonealarm but install took ages ...harddisk led just blinked
every second or so during the configuration of Zonealarm pro. After 9 minutes!! the system
Computer starts up fine, e-mail works, internet works but with a WEIRD restriction.
Firefox v1.5 can not access *any* google server. The others...like lycos, yahoo and so on
load perfect as with any other website.
It's not a provider problem cause the other computer (also zonealarm on) has access
to any google server.
So, something seems to be messed up.
If I uninstall Zonealarm pro, then problem is fixed, so firefox can access google again.
Re-install Zonealarm pro , google servers gone and this is confirmed by the commands
ping and tracert.
Conclusing : full internet access, except google.
I just installed zonealarm and gave permission as soon when an application want's internet
access so no additional firewall rules yet.
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
