zone alarm - what's going on?

  Camille 17:51 28 Mar 2003

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?

You have to remove Zonealarm from deep within Windows...

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.

Check your internet zone in Zone Alarm - make sure your default connection to your ISP is listed there. Also make sure that Internet Explorer is set to green ticks in the program control box.

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.
