Downloading and Zone Alarm

  Chris-347369 17:29 18 Aug 2006

When I have Zone Alarm running I cannot download any files from the internet.

How do I configure Zone Alarm to allow me to download files?

Have you a limited account or are the Administrator?

Open ZoneAlarm>Programs Control>Programs tab>Enable the first two boxes for your download manager.

If it's not listed, Browse to its location and Add to the list.

I am an administrator

I don't have a download manager. I'm just using internet explorer and clicking on files to download. For example trying to download Firefox

Have you tried right clicking the link and then click "Save As"?

  Chris-347369 17:44 18 Aug 2006

That does excatly the same. All downloads reach about 100KB and then say complete.

have you checked the download links? or looked at the downloaded files with a hexeditor or similar? sometimes webpage links can be named .zip

It happens with any download.

i.e. Windows Live Messenger, Firefox, RoboForm

Does the download work when ZA is shut down?

  Chris-347369 19:54 18 Aug 2006

Yes it does

Hm, odd. Do you get any error messages?
