I changed from dial up to BT Broadband 5 days ago and installed Zone Alarm (off PC Advisor cover disc) at the same time. Everything runs fine, but Zone Alarm is now reporting that it has blocked over 30,000 intrusions (326 high rated so far) and blocked over 10500 access attempts. All this in 5 days ??? I didn't know I was so popular. If I bring up the ZA window I can see the numbers mounting as I watch. What on earth is going on? A friend has ZA also and his is reporting about 15000 intrusions - but after 12 months of use.
out of curiosity...do you know what is actually trying to get ONTO your computer with all these attacks??? I ahv BB and Guard IE here, which has its own "built-in" firewall as such, works in a "reverse way " to a firewall ..(at least that is the way I describe how it works!!)
Hi musicbassman,yup thats correct,only one should be running. Which version of ZA alarm is it?,version 5.0 has proved really troublesome,ZA are working on sorting out the problems,click here click here
