I recently installed Steam and have been playing Counter Strike a lot,
but I have noticed that sometimes
when I exit and disconnect from Steam I can no longer access the internet via IE or Firefox. When either of these programs are started I simply get the "page cannot be displayed" message. What is strange is that in the logs tab of zonealarm there is no sign of this blocking.
I also noticed that everything else (realplayer, mcafee, media player)
but the web browsers can access the internet no problem.
However once I disable zonealarm from the firewall tab and let Windows firewall take over, everything works fine. Totally shutting down zonealarm and restarting it also works.
I'm running the latest version of zonealarm pro.
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro
