Problem with security suite

  Safi 17:19 09 Sep 2006

I have Zone Alarms Security Suite, and like most security suites (if not all), I don't understand what all the jargon means.

My problem is: on some websites, when I click on an image or link where it is supposed to open to a larger view in a new window, all I get is the ping noise as it is blocked.

I want to know what area of my security settings I need to go into change so's I can click on the image to see it enlarged. I have tried playing about with enabling cookies, and even momentarily switching off my firewall (scary stuff and I shouldn't do it, I know)

Can someone help me in as jargonless a way as possible.

No, I've had a good read and browsed through some of the options.

It is a website where I want to click on a thumnail image to see an enlarged version. But I am blocked each time I click on an image.

You forgot to mention what browser you tend to use.

You've got a pop-up blocker working in the background.
Turn it off and voila..your popup of the larger image shall appear.

Leave to Pop-up blocker.

Right Click > Open in New Window. Worth a try.

Yes, I've tried turning off pop up block via my own pc settings as well as Zone Alarm's. And I've right clicked too. I've tried all the obvious things before I posted.

Thanks for your suggestions though. Much appreciated.

Sorry if this is obvious, but is there a band of (yellow) text appearing across the top saying that agreement is required for say an active x.

I don't know what the full internet suite looks like, I'm hoping that it looks something like ZA Pro Firewall. If it does there is a slide bar somewhere on the privacy tab that corresponds to 'Cookie Control'. You need to move it from the highest setting to medium to allow most Cookies. If it doesn't act like ZA Pro firewall you need to go to Zonelabs site and download the pdf here

Yep, all my settings are to medium (I even switched off cookie control altogher just to see if it made a difference.
