This past month or so, I have upgraded to ZAISS 8.0.400.020, the latest ZAFF (I don't remember/have version no. right now), AND FireFox 3.5
I don't remember exactly in which order I upgraded these programs, but it's most likely FF 3.5 because I upgraded ZAISS manually without being notified by ZA pop-up.
In any case, somewhere around that time between upgrading the browser and ZAISS, I had been getting intermittent Internet connection. At first, I thought it might be conflicts between ZAISS/ZAFF and FF browser; so I installed Google Chrome, which as far as I understand ZAFF does not support.
But these past few days I've been getting intermittent Internet connection with Google Chrome.
Furthermore, last time I posted here, I was advised to uninstall all my other AV/ASW programs (PC Tools Spyware Doctor w/ AV + ThreatFire, and TrojanHunter), which I did. I also reformatted my HD recently. Since then, I occasionally run SuperAntispyware and MalwareByte (sp?), and I haven't received notice of any major infection from these programs, including ZA.
Lastly, right now I'm connected to a Mac. The Mac runs on FireFox 3.5, and I have never had any problems like the ones I have with my PC around the same time I started having these PC problems. So I don't think it's my ISP or router.
Can anyone figure what's going on?
