i have windows vista ultimate and zonealarm security suite - if i install zonealarm it basically kills all access to the internet. anything on the lan continues to work and ive found that if i type in ip addresses for websites eg google i can access them.
so clearly zonealarm is blocking the dns. if i uninstall zonealarm everything works, if i install it the dns is blocked so its not invalid dns ips.
i have tried turning off everything in zonealarm and setting it to not start with windows (the truevector service is off when zonealarm is not started at windows startup) but this makes no difference. it seems as long as the zonealarm network driver is installed its blocking my dns.
i have also tried zonealarm 7.4 and it has the exact same effect.
both dns servers are added to the trusted zone already - i tried adding a rule to just add everything to the trusted zone and it made no difference either.
what else can i try?
Operating System:Windows Vista Ultimate
