Tonight I tried forever to get online, and forgot about last year after the update from windows update when zonealarm would keep us from getting connected to the net. I was a XP user then.Finally my husband remembered it and after turning zone alarm off we were able to connect right away. Like many others I thought it was a modem issue since I was dsl also.I have also had a modem to go bad on me too.So my question now is this another problem with windows update and causing zone alarm to stop the connection to the net? Do we need a patch or is it more simple to just move the mode of protection down to medium? I did look back to last year's patch and started to try all those suggestions but I figured maybe this problem would need a different patch or solution. Any help would be great ,and thanks ahead for the help.~ SusieI have Vista Home Premium,Zone Alarm free, AVG free virus protection, windows defender.
