I've had an odd problem crop up in the last few days.
I have Windows XP home.
I have AT&T DSL with their browser that is accessed via password. I also have an IE icon on the desktop, which I can use to directly access the internet (via IE7).
Early this week, I suddenly have no longer been able to access the internet via the desktop icon. I can ping, but get the "page not found" message. When I turned off ZA (free version, 7.0.462.00) the broswer loaded just fine.
However, I can access the internet via the password-protected browser without any problems.
I've checked the program controls and IE has the trusted and internet access boxes checked. (also went through George V's helpful hints). No change.
I'm a bit worried that this will prevent ZA from updating itself. When I hit the "check for updates button" I get the "page not found" message.
So what's going on? How can I fix this?
