    Default FireFox and Zone Alarm

    I have the latest issues of FireFox (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3) and Zone Alarm Free version(7.0.337.000) and it seems that at least once a day I have to run Safe Mode and go in and delete the two files imadb.rdb and backup.rdb for FF to connect. I am also running WinXP SP2. If I don't delete those two files I will be unable to connect FF. It is very frustrating and I don't understand why I have to keep deleting those files. Is there something I can do to set ZA to "play nice" with FF?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
    Software Version:7.0

    Done this?

    1. Go to Run type in command, hit OK, and type ipconfig /all then press enter. In the returned data list will be a line DNS and DHCP Servers with the IP address(s) listed out to the side
    2. In ZA on your machine on the Firewall>Zones tab click Add and then select IP Address. Make sure the Zone is set to Trusted
    3. Click OK and then Apply for each one.
    4. The localhost or loopback must be listed as Trusted. It has the address of 127.0.0.1
    5 The Generic Host Process or the svchost.exe listed in the Program list must have both Trusted and Internet access and it must have server rights for the Trusted Zone, but not the Internet Zone.
