not really it just happens now and then. I'm assuming that somewhere along the line Zone Alarm did not load correctly hence the error. It always pays to have a second go at starting pc up if you have an error on a program the first time.

'Had a ballon from Taskbar today saying a new update of Zone Alarm was available.
I managed to steer through blandishments to load all sorts of versions (all with a cost somewhere) and downloaded/installed a very new look and large file.

You could just try updating and see if that clears the confusion?

swanny2 -see my postings in Helproom over the last couple of days. The latest update appears to be buggy and really screwed up my computer.
