Started having problems with file downloads and with
"view source" not being able to open notepad and being unable to cut from a web site and paste into Word. Got the idea Adobe was the problem, so uninstalled Reader and tried to reinstall - got the "Windows cannot access ..." message. After spending several hours finally discovered Zone Alarm was the culprit. It goes away if I shut down ZA, which I don't want to do. This may have been caused by an automatic update or installation of Internet Explorer 7. Any settings I should change? Windows Firewall is off.
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
