I did a complete re-install of ZL IS on my PC from scratch last week with the latest download as my programs list was getting unwieldy and a re-install cleans out the old crud. All was working well except for the problem below.
I'm now experiencing LAN dropouts - losing visibility and access to another PC on a peer to peer LAN. I'm running Vista home 64, the other is running XP home (32). The only solution seemed to be to reboot my PC to regain the connection.
After a lot of research and trying to fix the problem by checking network settings, ZL settings and PC settings (e.g. power management) on both machines I was getting nowhere. Then I read somewhere that Kapersky and Vista 64 conspire together to create LAN dropouts and the only solution is to uninstall (not just disable) Kapersky. I seem to recall that ZL contains bits of the Kapersky software so I uninstalled it on my PC this morning and so far the LAN has held up. Normally I would have had to reboot several times by now to reconnect.
Is this a known issue? Have I got the right root cause do you think? I'd like to resolve it because I have always rated ZL and don't want to rely on the Windows firewall.
TIA for any help.
