Have been having major problems connecting to net and then connecting but not being able to display pages. Thought it was my dialup network, then my ISP settings, finally started to follow microsoft instructions to modify registry. First step involved uninstalling firewall and then checking for connection. LO and behold, I could not only connect, but could also display pages!! everything was fine.
Don't like the idea of not having a firewall though , so reinstalled from CD and (surprise) the problem came back - connecting but no display
I have used Zone Alarm for ages with no problem - what's going on? I really don't want to go without a firewall... any suggestions?
well - i managed to remove zone alarm and all its files, that's not really the problem. The problem is, when it's reinstalled I can't actually get any web pages to display. So now I have no firewall - THAT'S the problem.
i had deep stress with zone alarms ,it stopped me getting web access,rest of puter ok.it took 8 hours and deep delving into registery solved my problems.worst part puter was my sons.he was not the happiest bunny in the warren till i`d sorted it.
This sounds like an incompatibility problem. What was the latest thing installed?
Suggest you do another "clean-sweep" install of your OS (if you have Drive Image take one there, if not carry on) then add AOL and try again. Then come back with results, someone will be here to try and help.
