"it did used to recognise it but it suddently went of."

System Restore?

lol , but that means 9 months of work out the window??

That depends on how long ago this problem has been with you MIT.

If its a recent problem,then just go back a day or so.

i have had this problem for about 9 , and have only just got time to do something about it. is there anther way?? like editing the registry or somehting??

Maybe a silly answer Mit,but checked in Control Panel/Security Centre.You should have the drop down boxes that will enable or tell you if its active.

If this is not working,maybe a reinstallation of Zonealarm and AVG will cure this problem.

No, it doesn't.

System Restore does NOT affect your 'work' i.e Word, Excel, photos, videos, music, etc, etc.

System Restore only restores (as the name suggests) system operating files to an earlier time.

Why not just disable the pointless Security Centre? Problem fixed.

Sys Restore won't delete any files (though it sometimes has to rename some) but will mean 9 months' worth of program installations and registry changes down the drain.

I must admit the same thing happened to me some weeks ago and I did just what ade.h suggests.
I know my antivirus and firewall are working so what's the hassle?
