I have been so pleased with Zone Alarm over the 4 years that I have had it installed on several computers, but I AM PULLING MY HAIR OUT now.
I (think) I have tried every suggestion in the Forums to ensure that my ZA is configured with my correct Default Gateway, NHCP Server, DNS Server... I still can only access IE 1 in 5 logon attempts.
Typically I receive the error Cannot Display Webpage.
I run Network Diag.
Sometimes it finds no problems, and then I can log in.
Sometimes I receive an error that I need to switch off my router, wait 3 minutes and try again.
I almost always end-up rebooting my entire system.
Usually, on reboot I can get out the first attempt, but not always.
When I look at the Error Report, typically I receive Error 12007.
On occassion I have "successfully connected to hotmail.com", or "successfully connected to Passport.net", but always receive "FTP.Microsoft.com - Server name or address could not be resolved ."
Is it safe to say that if I shutdown Zone Alarm, then boot IE, then boot ZA (which is about the only way I can get on to IE the first time), that I basically am operating in an unsafe environment, without ZA protection?
Or, conversely, what I'm asking is Can I boot ZA after booting IE for firewall or anti-virus/spam, etc. protection?
Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
PS - I am running ZA Internet Security Suite
(ver. 6.5.737) on XP Home
