    Default ZA freezing up my computer...

    Yea, me again. I'm almost a spammer here .

    I installed ZA today, but today I also got random freezes of my computer. Nothing works then. I can't even move the mouse, and the screen isn't updating anymore. It just froze. Then the sound continues for around 30 seconds, then it'll be a 'brrrzzzzz brrr' annoing noise, it's hanging then..
    Followed by an afraid me...

    My computer is just pretty 'cold', not overheatened, also my memory/cpu/ram useage is pretty low.

    This freeze doesn't happen immediately after startup. When it freezes I have to shutdown and restart using the PC's power button.

    Today I did a lot on my computer..
    - Installed ZA
    - Port forwarded things correctly
    - Started up a server (It was frozen too when I did NOT had the server running..)

    You know, that mess.
    I also messed around in ZA's settings to make sure it'll allow the ports to connect to my pc without annoyance.

    What could be the problem of this?
    - ZA itself
    - Wrong security settings
    - Odd virus that went through firewall (?)

    I also noticed that there were around 1000 of blocked entries.. Is that normal? :S

    Thanks for support .

    (Using Win 7 Home Premium 64 bits, 4 gig ram blahblah. It's running fine usually, never had any flaws like this..)

    Hi,

    I removed ZA for a while to test what happens. Windows Firewall is turned on and I closed my ports for security (I want two direction security..).
    Till now I got no freezes, but it happened after a few hours of no-problem ZA the first time, second time after an hour.. Still third freeze after around 2 hours.
    I'll report back in 24 hours.

    See what happens....
    If you have not please install these hot fixes from MS before reinstalling ZA. They are designed to specifically dealing with windows 7 OS issues (i.e. bugs) when dealing with third party firewalls:

    Until now, no problems yet.
    Though I'll see tomorrow again, turning off my PC for now as I'm leaving off here and I don't want to see my PC freeze while I'm gone..

    Thanks for support until now, I'll install those patches tomorrow.

    PS. Are 1000 blocked entries normal?

    EDIT: Do those hotfixes just unzip? :x

    At the moment ZA isn't crashing my pc (yet).. I think the problem is solved, thanks for those fixes. I'll post back if the crash happens again.
