    No doubt you have downloaded your Microsoft updates recently.

    One has caused a few issues with ZA. The update is called KB951748

    You can either move the Internet Zone security slider to MEDIUM to restore access or...

    Go to Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.
    Make sure there is a tick in the box to show the Updates (at the top of the window).
    Locate KB951748 and remove it.
    ZA Internet Zone security can be set to High again.

    ZA are currently working on a proper fix for this.

    Thanks for that information. It works.
    I will remove KB951748 update. What was
    that MS update
    supposed to fix.

    The update addresses a DNS vulnerability.

    [QUOTE]Multiple vendors are subject to the DNS-spoofing vulnerability, which stems from a fundamental weakness involving a lack of entropy in DNS queries rather than a specific security bug. Successfully exploiting the flaw could allow hackers to spoof DNS replies, creating a means to redirect network traffic or to mount man-in-the-middle attacks.[/QUOTE
