  ashes 15:28 12 Apr 2010

I have a PC with XP OS. Running wireless broadband through Netgear software everything finr until I installed ZoneAlarm. This results in no internet the Wireless connection not showing in the task bar and when I open Netgear it remains open for 0.5 seconds only before "closing". I have uninstalled Zonelarm but the problem persists. Please help

And make sure ZoneAlarm is completely removed from your computer - it's notoriously difficult to get rid of. Here's a removal tool

You do not need zonealarm as the router has a built in firewall...and it is utterly naff. Get rid and if you want to use a firewall, use the free windows one.

My latest Netgear Router has 2 firewalls.

I use Windows XP and Vista Firewalls only.
