OT: Zone Alarm blocks 'net access after expiry

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Somewhat off topic, but may be useful: My wife's laptop suddenly could
no longer access the 'net. Eventually, after trying a number of other
ploys, I turned off Zone Alarm, and access was restored. Just like that.
No reboot, no restart of Tbird. The copy of Zone Alarm on that machine
expired about 3 months ago.

A simple solution for what at first looked like a major problem.

ZA announced an upgrade was available, installed that, but: 'net access
disappeared again, two days later. This time, I bit the bullet, went
into safe mode, and uninstalled and completely eliminated all traces of
the ISP access  software. Also traces of a few other programs that had
been uninstalled. Rebooted, reinstalled the ISP software, and now
everything works just fine.

I'm not at all sure just what cured the beast. But don't look a gift
horse in the mouth... ;-)

The above download worked for 5 of my customers and they've not come
back with any complaints yet.

Well, I don't have any complaints, either. Nice to know there's a few
nano-bits of satisfaction more than there used to be, eh? Makes the
Universe a smidge nicer... ;-)
