I've used Zone Alarm for a very long time with no trouble but I am now using Zone Alarm free version 6.5.737.000 in Windows XP and am having problems. My internet access is through a wireless home network which is WPA protected.
Every now and then I lose my internet access in one or another PC on the network. Sometimes Windows can repair the connection on that PC, but sometimes I need to reboot the PC to restore internet access. The reason I think ZA has something to do with this is because I've just noticed that when this happens, if I go to ZA's "Alerts and Logs" screen, I notice that all the alerts that had previously been on this screen have dissappeared and the screen is virginally blank. Fortunately the firewall zones settings are not wiped out, but this is getting to be annoying.
What could cause ZA to lose it Alerts log and apparently simultaneously stop all internet access?
