i can't run scan disk or defrag with zone alarm active. they both start, get a little way then keep re starting again but get no further (only a few %)it all worked fine before i downloaded the lattest version (free). i know it's no big deal but it's just anoying having to disable it each time...any ideas? thanks! (am running ME)
You'll never be able to Scandisk or defrag with ZoneAlarm - it's a firewall...:-)
Joke over, so the simple answer, as always in this case, is to close everything down that is already open, especially ZoneAlarm, NortonAV and similar programs/utilities. Right clicking on each icon in the TaskBar will provide the means to do so.
Then you will be able to Scandisk or defrag at your leisure, knowing that nothing can stop either doing its work.
