I have just received an e-mail addressed to Dear customer, saying that "Installation of Microsoft Update KB951748 may result in loss of Internet connectivity." This update has been installed on the 09/07/08 and there doesn't seem to be any problems.
I don't even have Zone Alarm! Needless to say I have not clicked on the link in the e-mail
As a matter of interest, I have had a problem with internet connectivity since that download was installed automatically, and I did not get a warning from ZA. I have since changed to Comodo and it is running ok now. It wasn't a scam.
I find that some of my programmes open very slowly, about 15 seconds, particularly Firefox. I have an up to date PC and I have done all the housekeeping. They are normally ok once they have been opened. I vaguely remember reading somewhere that this time can be shortened, am I right or dreaming?
