Hi anskber + skidzy. Thanks for the feedback, I was not really wanting to download another Firewall, But if you believe that Zone Alarm Is better than The one's that I have been using, I will give it a try, Thanks for getting back to me,
If your running through a router, the router shouild have a built in firewall anyway..
To check your service ports for issues goto: click here Click on proceed about half way down the page then click on All Service Ports.
This will tell you if you have any problems with any ports. You should get an all green report.. Full stealth. If you get a red block, mouse over it and see which port it is and possibly what's using it.

Hi Tenplus 1,Thanks for your feedback, I have downloaded the free version of Zone Alarm, I must say that I am not that keen on it at the moment , But will keep it for a few weeks to see if it settles down,Most times when I try to find what program is wanting to be acknowledged, It cuts me of from the internet,Like I said once all programs are set, It may run a bit better,If not I will try your firewall, Thanks for your help.
