After I upgraded Zone Alarm it now stops me using the Internet. I've tried both IE and Firefox. I have to disable ZA to access the Internet. I've uninstalled then reinstalled ZA but still has the same problem. I'm running Windows 7.
I tend to agree with Zak. Win 7's firewall is good enough in my humble opinion but if you've used ZA firewall for a long time you should be able to go in to the settings to allow internet connection. I can't help you with the settings as I don't use ZA but someone here might be able to advise.
I used to have PCTools firewall with W7 but had trouble with an update. I followed advice such as that from rdave13 and Zak and have used the W7 firewall since then with no apparent problems. Maybe there is a clash with your anti virus - I remenber a while ago AVG and ZA seemed to have problems together.
It must have been the update because it was working fine until then. It's worked fine with Avast anti virus. Thanks for the advice. I've tried all kinds of settings in ZA but gave up in the end....I'll uninstall ZA and use Windows Firewall. Thanks again.
