I have been running ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite on my Mother in Law's computer.
It continually causes problems.
A reboot doesn't always solve the problem.
It seems to manifest itself after an update is performed on Zonealarm.
I have rebuilt the PC twice over this problem then it works for a while and then this nonsense starts happening and it gets into this crazy loop until it peeves you off enought to start from scratch again.
When it blocks activity on the net, the system tray icon turns into a red square with a yellow cross.
A reboot fixes the icon but as soon as you try to access the net in any application, you can't, and then the cross comes up again and tells you to reboot.
I am at wit's end with this and appears that I have wasted the money for buying the product.
I run the same product on my PC and it works fine - hence my recommendation to my mother in law.
The XP Pro version is only running SP1.
I have just loaded SP2 but left it downloading when I came home.
I plan to go there tomorrow and reinstall ZA again.
Does anyone have any suggestions or is SP2 going to solve my problems?
