I just came in from work and firewall missing!

  STEVE71163 16:14 27 Jan 2003

I just came in from work and my sygate fire wall was missing off of my task bar and if you go into programs and click on it nothing happens. I have re loaded this on my system and it is now working fine. Has anyone any idea what could cause this as i have broadband and obviously dont want to leave myself open to problems?

Thanks for replying Powerless. Its windows xp

I'm guessing that you have your "Hide active icons" box, was checked in the "Notifications Area". Right Click Taskbar > Properties > Its at the bottom...That would explain the missing icon.

However that was a guess and the failure for sygate to start when you wanted it to...Hmmm a mystery.

So if you go the control Panel and click on Administrative Tools > Event viewer > have a look at the system and application logs. If anything that will tell you...Maybe an application hang?

Thanks Powerless. I had a look in the control panel and it says error and then stopped earlier this afternoon. I think all i can do is keep an eye on it?

yeah I having a few problems with sygate on xp,what does your say in the event viewer,mine says something about missing or not properly written registry files.

when i upgraded to XP i found there was a problem with sygate loading.

In the end i changed from sygate to ZoneAlarm click here
