When I set up a yahoo widget, it not only disabled my AVG - it also reset all ZoneAlarm settings. ONLY yahoo is allowed to access the net and has TOTALLY unrestricted server access as well for over 30 yahoo variant programs. I yanked the dsl wire and canceled ALL yahoo access and deleted all yahoo widget from my computer. I also deleted all YIM and all other yahoo files from my computer (here and at home). I have manually re-entered the programs that I wish to have access and manually locked out everything else - again. Is there no way to 'lock' the setings the user decides on? And how the 4377 did yahoo do what it did? Is there a hole in ZoneAlarm? I will be asking the same question at AVG as this is a very serious security threat in my opinion. Has anyone else experienced this? I searched for yahoo widget and got no hits here, so am posting this here. If it is in the wrong spot, please move it and accept my apologies.
