    If you can't remember what you have changed from defaults then better to start from zero as GEORGEV suggested.

    Thanks,

    Ah, yeah I remember what was default. The part that still strikes me as odd is that I've always had my ZA settings like I have now & they never gave me any problems before.

    If you see alerts from non-routable IP addresses, this is most likely from
    a machine on your local network, or your NAT (hardware) router if you have
    one. Private IP addresses are non-routable - this means that they exist
    only on your local network and cannot normally be routed to or from the
    Internet.

    The private, or non-routable, IP addresses are as follows (x can be any
    legitimate IP number):

    - 192.168.x.x
    - 172.16.x.x through 172.31.x.x
    - 10.x.x.x

    When you see these alerts, determine whether it is from a computer on
    your network, or from the machine or router that performs NAT or DHCP
    (most commonly, if the IP address ends in 1 then it would be the device
    performing NAT/DHCP).

    The most common cause of these alerts is not having the Trusted Zone
    set up properly. Be sure that your local network systems (and router as
    necessary) are included in the Trusted Zone (set to Medium). Also, you
    may need to UNcheck the box to block local servers.

    So relax, loosen up and don't panic.Just follow what already suggested and just use defaults from install.

    Have no other suggestion to offer.All users here.I would suggest if you still need help use ZoneAlarm Free Firewall Technical Support.

    Footnote : Under SmartDefense Advisor 2nd tab Technical Info. Look at Inside the firewall alert and ZoneAlarm security enforcement at time of alert to see what has taken place.

    Well the only other computer hooked up to my router is my dad's laptop. Although for all I know some 1 else could be using our internet. True we have it secured with a password although as far as I know some 1 could have it. Thanks for all the advice though!

    PS: I do have 1 very last question, aside from the extra alerts/logs I get from having my security set too high, is it a bad thing at all? What I mean is can having my security settings set too high actually compromise my security?

    Just take you're time to reflect on all the threads posted and follow what already suggested by Guru fax & Guru GeorgeV and just use defaults from install.

    Good Luck and Have a nice Day

    The IP blocked (192.168.1.1) looks like your router that is also the one resposible of allocating the IPs to the machine attached to it. Setting the trusted zone to HIGH will basically assume any connection will come from the internet. Your settings in the firewall zones will be nullified.

    In such scenario you may have connection issues (drop of connection since hearbits from ISP may be rejected) and difficulties in obtain IPs from the router at startup or after sleep/hibernation.

    sodapop554, This is correct, Inside the firewall alert and ZoneAlarm security enforcement at time of alert confirms is what happen.
