I cannot run zone alarm free firewall. After first install of update 6.1 I had random, infrequent refusal to allow access to different websites. Traced this to zone alarm refusing access to net of svchost.exe. after auto config. to allow it (remember, this is 'random) I then cleared everything (cookies, temp files)& uninstalled ZA firewall, deleted install file & re-downloaded 6.1.
The new, installed download had the same prob, but much worse, refusing connection to email server, altered outlook config, refused firefox & on reboot had to safe-start & change boot device back to hard disc! All of this random, at ZA's leisure! All symptoms non-existent running without ZA installed.
Its possible i've tripped over a false ZA update box at a website & clicked on it.
I'd like to run ZA
