    Question Downloads fail at ~10MB

    Since installing ZoneAlarm Extreme (previously had internet security which worked fine for downloads) I've found that large file downloads fail at around 10MB with no warning (the ZoneAlarm download screen just disappears). If I uncheck 'Check file downloads for spyware' on the settings page then the file downloads OK - but I'm disabling one of the ZA security features. Has anyone else seen this and found a solution?


    Windows XP SP3
    IE 8

    ZoneAlarm Extreme Security version:
    TrueVector version:
    Driver version:
    Anti-virus engine version:
    Anti-virus signature DAT file version:1011790112
    AntiSpam version:
    ZoneAlarm ForceField
    ZoneAlarm ForceField Spyware Scanner
    ZoneAlarm ForceField Anti-Phishing Database
    ZoneAlarm ForceField Spyware Sites Database 04.075

    have you tried the latest beta of extreme? Very stable and resolve many issues with forcefield in ZA Extreme. If it is a ZA issue the beta should resolve it. However, it may be not at all related to it. May be a corruption of your TCP/IP or due to other toolbars/security tools.

    Beta here:

    Thanks. Further testing shows that unchecking the 'check downloads ...' option is not enough - I have to disable forcefield altogether to get large downloads to load (btw it only affects downloads - the internet is fine). Will try the beta and see.
