I've seen the IE7 blocked thread before but there never seems to be a clear resolution.
Windows XP just updated me to IE7 and of course, it can't connect.
I recently had the same problem with Firefox updating. I removed it, re installed a fresh copy. No joy. Try different settings, No help. At that point IE worked ok. I had also had a older copy of seamonkey installed and I ran and understandably declined the offer to upgrade it right then. Seamonkey worked. I tried Firefox after and it has worked fine since, and I considered myself lucky.
ZA Security Suite 7 never asked if the new versions of either program were ok, so I have to wonder if it's detecting them or not (program flaw, where's the fix)?
ZA also "updates" frequently and locks up my browser for a few minutes while it does this. Every half hour or so. Annoying. Yes, I need probably need more RAM as I'm at 512mb now.
