    Default ZoneAlarm Security Alert - plugin-container.exe

    ZoneAlarm Security Alert
    REPEAT PROGRAM
    Plugin Container for Firefox is trying to access the internet
    Identification: Not available in ZoneAlarm
    Application: plugin-container.exe
    Destination IP: 224.0.0.253

    I DID find it has something to do with FireFox, which I am using. Their solution was to use Google Chrome.

    Any OTHER solution(s)? Is it safe to allow?

    It is Sometimes very Difficult to Diagnose and fix a Computer from halfway across the Country, without All the Details about your computer and Software that you failed to provide, without our ability to sit in front of your Computer monitor and see what's going on..

    *** NOTICE:

    Whenever posting here, it is always advisable to list Full details of your Computer:

    It is normally Helpful when posting here to give full details of your computer setup.

    Give the Exact Type and version of Zone Alarm used, Exact Version of FireFox, Windows Version used, other security tools installed. is this a First time install?
    Stopped working recently? other issues? Error messages in the ZA logs?

    The More information you post the more likely users here will be able to understand the issue and try to help.

    also is this a DeskTop, Laptop computer or Netbook.

    Please List any other Security Programs installed as these programs may be conflicting with Zone Alarm.

    All version of ZA 9.2 and above work well on Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit OS..

    The standard Free AVG Anti-virus with no added features works very well with Zonalarm Free version..
    Also Firefox version: 3.6.6 works well with ZA Free, but not FireFox 4.0 or IE9

    A Google Search of "AVG IDS Application"
    Shows very many reports of Problems with AVG IDS Aplication..
    See Link below:

    You may want to check the AVG Support Forum for problems with AVG IDS Application..
