firstly i have been a longtime ZA Free Firewall user
i have been having a problem with
telstra broadband wireless
windows xp professional sp3
security programs installed along with zonealarm free
are AVG Free
and Malwarebytes anti-malware.
(had been fine working along with zonealarm,
and if you are wondering about compatability my sis has all these 3 working together on her laptop and she has no troubles except for my PC of course.)
it has come up in the last past weeks that i could not my access internet connection graduly until i got feed up and done some investigating and found zonealarm was really acting up
some sites i could access like google search
but most of any other sites i tried to load with differant browsers
firefox ,ie and google chrome but i still couldnt access other sites, all my ZAFFW (za free firewall) program settings were fine but i just couldnt figure whats going on so i uninstalled it and used the windows firewall to use internet it works fine
i reinstalled zafw and tried again same thing again internet access was so poor so i got feed up and used cpes_clean to remove zaffw and tried my windows firewall again fine.
reinstalled zaffw and same again almost no internet access execpt for google and a small hand full of sites.
so then i turned off zonelarm firewall by sliders
still not much internet access
checked my za program settings fine
so i finally uninstalled zaffw
and im currently using pctools firewall plus at moment to keep me secure.
but what is happening to zonealarm free firewall
to play up so much?
ive scanned for viruses and rootkits and heaps of other solutions but none prevail
this is a very anoyying mater.
what could it be?
is there anything better to remove all ZAFFW Traces so i can reinstall it clean? (like previous cpes_clean ive tried and it didnt make a differance)
so help id like to get zaffw going again.
