I am experiencing some major problems with internet connectivity (it just went again, hopefully I can find a way to post this).
It seems to be linked to Zone Alarm trying to update. The internet is dropping out quite a lot and it is very frustrating. If I want to guarantee that the internet will drop out I just need to try and update the virus definitions in Zone Alarm, this never works and always leads to the internet dropping out.
I have managed to download and update Zone Alarm to version 9.0.083 but this didn't help. Sometimes when I try and update the virus definition files it works for a while but then loses the connection. I have set the security to medium but this still has not helped.
It certainly does appear that Zone Alarm is the culprit, I'm almost at the point where I will try and use the Windows firewall for a while and see if that fixes the problem.
I am using a PC running Windows XP service pack 3.
Any help or advice appreciated.
