    Default Is firewall and anti-pishing working well?

    HI!. I'm an user of this program for many years and I love it. One month ago, I updated it to version 10.1.079.000.
    My PC: Windows 7 Pro SP1 32 bits. Anti-virus Avast 5.

    There are the following problems:
    1. Randomly, after start up, Internet (Anti-pishing) is set off and I have to set on mannually.
    2. The Basic Firewall tells 0 Attempts to access blocked. Strange, doen´t it?.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Can't help on point 1, on point 2 you are probably behind a router or modem doing NAT. i.e. the router/modem already block unsolicited incoming/inbound calls before ZA (you are perfectly fine and ZA will manly filter outgoing/outbound unsolicited calls). If before ZA was recording blockage of inbound then most probably was not setup correctly (e.g. LAN not set as TRUSTED in the ZA firewall zones).

    Question Re: Is firewall and anti-pishing working well?

    I checked the item Zones and the setting is Net 2....in trusted zone.
    Besides, why on the home screen appaers "Your pC is safe?

    Yes, safe. ZA firewall is working as it should. Why should say the contrary?

    Default Re: Is firewall and anti-pishing working well?

    Because after a month the Basic Firewall tells 0 Attempts to access blocked. Hard to believe it, doesn't it?

    Other detail: The icon Z on the right tray does not says "traffic" when there are.

    Ask: May ZA to cause the restart the PC unexpectedly?

    This can be perfectly normal as already explained to you above. I have asked about your connection setup but I don't think you provided an answer. Could you please paste a screenshot of the ZA firewall zones window in which you have details of the IP of your network?

    This is by design and already discussed many times in this forum. e.g --> http://forums.zonealarm.com/showpost...9&postcount=23

    Sorry, but I can't send you the screenshot because on the page "Post Reply" doesn't appear the button "Manage Attatchments". So, I copy its content:

    Noun Direction IP/Site Entry tipe Zone
    Net 2 10.0.0.0./255.255.255.0 Net Trusted
    DHCP Server 10.0.0.2 Direction IP Trusted
    DHCP Server 192.168.1.1 Direction IP Trusted

    Default Re: Is firewall and anti-pishing working well?

    Your info confirm you are behind a router, this means unsolicited incoming calls are filtered by the router and not ZA. So, it's normal you do not see blocked entries. If before you had them then ZA was not configured correctly.

    One of the DHCP IP seems obsolete unless you connect the pc with different provider/router/connection.

    You cannot upload attachment here you need to upload somewhere else and insert a link.

    Hope it's clear now.

    Thanks,

    FAX:

    Then I did the following actions:

    Uninstal and install ZA 10.1.079.000, putting focus in settings. Now, I'm sure they are the default, wiht the derogations as follow:

    1. Security Server : Max.
    2. DefenseNet : Manual
    3. The use of Microsoft Catalog: Disabled

    Well, until now, the Basic Firewall tells 0 Attempts to access blocked, and while so, for me the problem is not solved.
