    Hi!by default ZA Extreme turn OFF windows firewall. If it did not the installation did not went very well and you may have problems in the future.Which version did you install (8.0.400.020)? Have you used the norton removal tool to remove any left over of norton?To ensure a smooth operation of ZA you should:1. First remove ZAX with the ZA removal tool (download on desktop and run as administrator):http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...cpes_clean.exe2. Run the Norton removal tool:http://service1.symantec.com/Support...050331081620393.) ZA does not play nice with many other security tools. They may block its correct functioning including updates. For example, spyware doctor, spysweeper, trojan hunter, win patrol, PCtools Threat Fire, Mcafee, Norton, Symantec, Adaware, SpybotS&D, WinPatrol, AVG, Avas t free, NOD, Kaspersky, COMOD O,Rising, PC doctor,and manyothers. If you want to troubleshoot issues with ZA please remove these tools (not enough to disable) and install back (if you really need) only after you see your ZA is working as it should.4.) Double check you have really removed all other security tools by running this utilityhttp://www.appremover.com/5.) Check the system for malware. Check with MBAM and SuperAntispyware. See links here:http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/b...essage.id=37876). Clean your system and registry with ccleaner.comhttp://www.ccleaner.com/download/builds/downloadbinslim7). Download the latest ZAX installerhttp://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...seHistory.html8). Install with default settings do NOT alter them. After re-boot go to ZA antivirus/antispyware and 'Update Now' and do not restore any previous ZA settings.Cheers,FaxP.S. For maximum protection Turn ON virtualisation in ZA browser security --> settings --> advanced. Please note that you will need to turn OFF forcefield everytime you need to update your browser or plug-in. Read the manual here: http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/pd...user-guide.pdf
