View Full Version : zonealarm question

10-27-00, 07:20 AM
This happened when I was using aol and now also when using RR
When using aol I would get one last ping that was blocked then aol would give me a "contection lost" or something like that.
And a few mins ago I left the zonealarm on and went into dos and about 10-20mins later I got a blocked http and then when i tried to get back into IE it wouldn't contect. I had to restart the computer to get back onto the net.
Please help me on this one if you know the answer.

Try reinstalling it. This might help.Try different security settings. I have rr and it works great for me.

RR is Roadrunner high speed cable internet access.

It's done by Time Warner, hence the name.

sometimes IE is f*#$ed up like that. try downloading a newer version, also can you use navigator? And as for your zone alarm settings, I know the factory settings are medium/high, also check and make sure you are allowing the program you want to use to access the internet.

If you're using Windows98se ICS to share your connection, you need to be set to medium or you cant connect.

ok thanks for all your help.
sorry to say that nothing posted has worked.

And I know IE sucks, but I its a little hardder to remove then what they let on. even if you upgrade it and remove that its still in the system. IE sould be call a virus or a trojan both are good.

Hey Joker, I have had a few things cause this. I guess easiest to most difficult.
1) Set Zone Alarm to Medium Local,High Internet
2)My ZA ports have been "blocked" before with cyber junk (the only way I could explain it)If you have ZAPro,double click to open it>Security>Advanced>Local zone custom settings tab- manually open open the ports, then do the same for Internet zone settings, then launch IE; remember to go back and close the ports again http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif ( I know that it sounds strange but it worked for me once.)
PS while you are there check local Zone content tab aand verify your NIC card is listed
3)Control Panel>add/remove programs> highlight IE>click remove> a promp will appear asking to remove or repair> click repair
4)programs>accessories>system tools>system info>tools> try IE repair again,system file checker, some others don't remember just explore checking things and see what it says
5) scan disk thorough mode w/ auto repair (takes a couple of hours http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/frown.gif may do while you sleep
6) uninstall & reinstall IE
7) Go to security forum, read about some spy proggies, DL AdAware from WWW.lavasoft.de (http://WWW.lavasoft.de)
and see what spyware you have in your 'puter
8)if you have spyware that have re written some files, bummer re format city sweetheart!
I hope this helps you, and be careful with free proggies next time.
