Firewall & AOL

  kurikat 18:26 13 Aug 2004

Hi again peeps,
After reading some of the posts, I clicked on a link, and downloaded ZoneAlarm Firewall.
However, as AOL has been a GOOD guy today again, and the connection seems to be holding, I was once again stumped when it would either NOT connect, or if it did, i got loads of message boxes from the Zonelarm saying this has tried to access the internet, or that has tried to access the internet. Nothing seemed to be running... actually not even crawling.
So I have to EXIT Zone alarm if I want to stay on-line with aol, is this RIGHT?
Is this what having a firewall is all about, (I am sure you will have noticed by now, I am just a novice when it comes to all things to do with computers) But even AOL advises us to protect our PCs, then when I do, I can't get it to work, "again"
Any help much appreciated...

I use sygate with AOL, and have never had any problems.
