    Default Unable to access Gibson Research Website

    Does anybody have any idea why the Gibson Research Corporation Website (www.grc.com) is blocked by Zonealarm.

    I very much enjoy their security discussions but I have to either shut down ZoneAlarm completely on this computer or use my Laptop (which has another product installed) to access the content on this site.

    Sorry -
    I tried your suggestions but it didn't work.
    I just get a blank window with with the spinning animation &quot;connecting&quot; when I attempt to access the website from either of the URL's you posted in your reply.

    The only options still seem to be to shut down ZoneAlarm completely or access this site from a computer that doesn't have ZoneAlarm installed.

    Sorry, All I can say is it works for me on three of my computers, 2 with ZASS and one with ZAPro..Maybe ZoneAlarm Tech Support has some suggestion? or can detect a conflict with zoneAlarm that I aam not aware of?Click www.zonealarm.com/tsform (Preferably with IE7 Browser), when you click the Submit button, you will receive an Auto-generated Confirmation email with your case number within 30 minutes or so, and a Reply from Tech Support ASAP..Please post back and let us know what they say?Good luck..

    I had the same problem, both with IE7 and Firefox. I corrected this by turning all privacy settings off in ZASS - after doing that I was able to connect to Gibson's site. I also had problems with Ebay working correctly with the privacy settings on.

    I thought I read somewhere on this forum that it has to do with the way the ZA implements its privacy settings using a script. I seem to recall that some web pages will count the number of scripts that are running and because there is 1 more script running than what should be (because of ZA's privacy settings being on) the web page may not load or function correctly. Can someone verify the accuracy of my statement? I don't want to mislead someone over something I &quot;recall&quot; reading about.

    Ultimately I stopped using the privacy settings in ZA - I now use a Firefox add-on to block scripts.
