I have an Asus netbook EeePC 1005P running Windows 7 and have just installed ZoneAlarm Free Firewall.

After I installed ZoneAlarm, when I boot the computer and log on at the Welcome screen I then get a black screen instead of the Desktop. Only the mouse pointer shows. The workaround is to do CTRL+ALT+DEL, when I can "Log off" and then after logging back on at the Welcome screen, the Desktop may display. Unfortunately this occurs each time I boot and logging off and logging back on again may have to be done many times to get the Desktop to display.

Please assist with this issue.
