problem with ZoneAlarm

  Rebanut 17:32 29 Aug 2005

Hi I have had the free ZoneAlarm installed for 2 or 3 years now without any trouble, a couple of days ago I stopped getting any email via Outlook Express and with help from Evesham found the problem, when you switch off the ZA all is ok, I have XP on my PC, could anyone help please.
Thank you.

Hi, I would advise you to uninstall ZA and instead use Kerio Firewall (Free) from click here also note that with Kerio you will get the Full (Paid for) version for the first month, it will then revert to the Free version, which is well adequate and very much easier to use than ZA. I used to use ZA, but now use Kerio.

Thank you for your response, I just find it strange that I should use ZoneAlarm for so long without any problems for it to start causing problems now.
Thanks anyway.

Check if you have had a Zone Alarm update without being aware.

Go in to the programme listings and see if Outlook Express has been blocked for some reason

This sort of difficulty is often caused by programme updates, either of Zone Alarm, or the programme being blocked

Microsoft issued a whole lot of security updates recently. Could this be the cause of your problem?

Hi again, as I said earlier I used to use ZA, over a period of several years, but then started to have problems - got fed up with the problems so changed to Kerio, which I believe is so good that I have now bought the Full Version on CD from click here
