I've just started using ZA free version 6.5.737, and have noticed that after periods of non-use I lose the ability to access the internet with IE. Firefox, my browser of choice, is not similarly affected. I rarely use IE, per se, but I often use Google Earth, which will not work if an IE connection cannot be established. I have added DHCP and DNS IP addresses to both trusted and internet zones in Firewall>Main>Advanced. IE has the same permissions that Firefox does (two green checks in the Access columns, two blue question marks in the Server columns). When I initially turn on the computer, IE works fine.
I am running IE6 on a Dell Dimension 5100 with WinXP Home SP2, and have a DSL connection.
Does anyone know what might be amiss, and is there a way I can fix this glitch without having to reboot each time?
