    Are you also running ZA version 7.0.483.0 on the notebook computer? The symptoms you describe sound like it's running a prior version.

    Sorry for the delay. On your desktop ZoneAlarm, go to Firewall > Zones and create an entry for your laptop, set the IP to that of the laptop, and set the Zone to Trusted. See if that works.

    I should have mentioned: to get the IP address of your laptop:On the laptop, go to Start > Run, enter "cmd" (without the quotes) and press Enter. then enter the command "ipconfig /all" without quotes. The entry "IP Address" is what you want to enter in ZoneAlarm.

    I
    have created trusted zone for notebook, unfortunately
    no success. Is there big risk if i leave the Internet Zone security level at Medium?

    Actually, there is a risk. I'm hoping that some of the forum gurus will see this thread and respond with other solutions.
