After installing for the first time the free version of ZoneAlarm Firewall this week, my computer restarted immediately as soon as I tried toconnect to the internet.This happens all the time as soon as it physically installed on my PC; in the sense that even when I shutdown thefirewall from the system tray, and tried to connect to the internet, it still booted my system although it's not running in the background!!! Practically my PCbootswhenever I doubliclick my ISP's icon to connect to the internet from my desktop, as long as ZoneAlarm Firewall is installed on my PC no matter whether it's running or not!!!
As a result, I had to completely UNINSTALL ZoneAlarm Firewallfrom my PC as it wasgiving me a lot of hassle to access the internet. As soon as I UNINSTALLedit, all the system just worked fine and connected to the internet normally.
Please note that when I installed it for the first time, I used/kept the recommended and default settings by ZoneLabs! Also, just before I tried to re-install it for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th time, I cleaned my registrywith2 different registry cleaner softwares and also ran CCleaner.
Kindly note that I have an Intel P4 512MB RAM Windows XP SP2 and Kaspersky Antivirus Personal 5, SpywareGuard and Webroot SpySweeper all of them always active in my system tray guarding my system. I have an ADSL internet account.
Considering ZoneAlarm is an award-winning firewall software, which I wouldtherefore like to installon my PC, would someone please tell me what can I do to overcome the problemby install it and access normally the internet usingthisfirewall without any hassle??Is it conflicting with any other software program that might be running in the background?
I thank you in advance for your help and support.
