I find that unless I disable Zone Alarm I cannot download Windows updates & I cannot configure Zone Alarm to allow me,what am i doing wrong.

Nothing, Zone Alarm does have some problems with this, just deactivate it when you are downloading updates and reactivate it when you have finished.

You should ensure that the Windows Firewall is permanently Disabled and that ZA is the Default firewall (check out the Windows Firewall settings in Security Center).

I have no problems downloading Windows Updates and ZA is permanently Enabled.

Also check from ZA's Program Control that Windows Internet Explorer has permission to access the Internet.
