The owner had set Zone Alarm to maximum protection. Which effectively cuts off the internet. But you installed SP3 so for now it's either SP3 or the Zone Alarm usual.
Don't fret about it since you are way out there on a limb with SP3. I expect more stuff to break.
I have a Dell Dimension 3000 running MS XP96, and SP 3 (candidate). At present the Windows firewall is used because I cannot seem to find a helpful alternative. But I would install Zone Alarm if I knew how.
First, i have some applications:Google Updater;Qwest Quick Care;Belarc Advisor;Real Alternative;Foxit reader;Secunia PSI . I used to have Counterspy and Spyware Doctor, but Zone Alarm anounced that they conflicted with it. I uninstallled them.
QUESTION: When i download Zone Alarm, it turns off my Internet Explorer. Can anyone help me get Zone Alarm going along with Internet Explorer and all the above applications? Please help: Advise.
Thanks a lot: Robb
