This is my first time posting to your forum and I have no idea if this is the correct place for my issue. The word "General" seemed like a good (safe) place to start. I am by no means a computer "geek" (sorry if that offends anyone.... I do know a few who wear that name like a badge of honor though). In other words, I need things explained in their basic form. I'm learning though!
I just uninstalled my AVG 7.5 Anti-Virus in order to update it to their latest version of 8.0. After installing this, I got a Red Shield in my system tray telling me that my Zone Alarm Firewall was turned off. I checked my Security Center and it says that Zone Alarm reports that it is turned off and the Firewall bar is Red (this bar has always been Green). I opened Zone Alarm and checked the status there and it tells me that I am protected. I have no idea if I'm being protected now....... has anyone experienced this problem or have an answer?
I have a pretty basic computer:
