I used Zone Alarm 6 never had a problem.
Since upgrading to Zone Alarm 7 I've had a reoccuring issue.
Everything will work fine for
a while- I leave the computer alone for an hour- come back and I'm locked out the internet.
I know it is Zone Alarm because if I temporarily turn off the firewall the internet works... turn it back on
and the internet is blocked again.
If I reboot Zone Alarm allows access to the internet again.
It's strange, Zone Alarm only seems to block the internet when the PC has been left alone for a while.
If it wern't for the fact that most of the time it works I would think I have a setting wrong.
I'm using Windows XP. Zone Alarm 7 (yes the free version).
Norton AntiVirus 2006 (but up-to-date).
Any clues- it's getting quite irritating having to reboot the PC every time I leave the computer alone for a while before I can use the internet.
Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
