1st post so I hope I provide all the necessary info.
I have had ZA Pro for several months and think i've upgraded at least once since purchasing this.
I also have ESET NOD 32 Antivirus and Antispyware, also recently upgraded (V3.0.566.0).
(Still not recognised by ZA
as antivirus software installed! but understood from various forums that the two do make good companions)
Prior to upgrading to this ZA version I discovered a couple of Trojans had made their way onto my system even though I am very careful about having high security settings, sorry I cant remember the actual Trojans that these were.
Only that the second one required a Deep-inspection scan to detect it.
Both of which I chose delete when the scan had completed.
When i first upgraded to this version of ZA it prompted me as to whether I wanted to keep items in Quarantine but ZA wasnt showing any items in Quarantine.
I clicked no to deleting Quarantine on the first attempt at upgrading so that i could check Quarantine in ZA once it had completed but there was nothing there.
I decided to run install again and this time selecting delete Qaurantine to reasure myself nothing nasty was being missed.
I noticed since upgrading ESET that cookie type sites such as hotmail have been playing up, after logging in, once i click on Inbox or a message, i'm returned to the login screen again.
If i relogin then I'm taken to where I clicked but then the same happens again, similar with Ebay.
I reported this to ESET but was told their product doesnt block cookies.
I'm using the latest version of IE, sorry cant find version number.
I used to add a web site to I.E>Tools>Internet Options>Privacy>Site List but found this cumbersome with also setting Privacy settings within ZA, so i decided to reduce the job within IE (deleted site list) so that ZA could manage this.
I.E>Tools>Internet Options>Security>Internet Zone set to medium and the same with Privacy settings, I.E. pop up blocker turned on.
I have noticed that since upgrading ZA that sites that i visit are not appearing in the Site List and unless i turn cookie control in ZA off i'm finding it impossible to use sites such as hotmail and even this forum either because of the issue of being returned to login pages or as with this forum i'm informed that i have cookies being blocked.
This was with ZA settings of cookie control - medium, ad
I have also now tried an uninstall of ZA from the Control Panel and then reinstalling as a fresh install as i
wondered if a Trojan could have
interferred with ZA,
but same issues remain.
Also noticed that i now have 4 extra zones present in the Firewall>Zones as DNS Servers in the Trusted Zone, i never put these here but noticed something in the version notes that mentioned adding network settings, is it possible to validate the IP addresses shown in the Firewall>Zones as being those of my local network?

Any help and advice greatly appreciated, would like to ensure I have good high settings working.
