Help with ZoneAlarm 6.5.737

Hi! everyone! I have recently downloaded and installed ZoneAlarm 6.5.737 and started using it after i activated it. But there is a strange thing when ever i try to use windows live Messenger 8.0 i cant connect i'm sure that zonealarm is certainly blocking something, because when i try to login in other PCs the connection or login is successful.
Can anyone i really want to use both the intivirus and Windows Live Messenger. Any step or configuration that i have to do?

Have you granted MSN Messenger "Access & Server Right" in ZoneAlarm? In the Z/A Control section you need green checks marks in all four places.

Hope this helps.

Here's How...

Double click on the ZA icon in the lower right corner, then click on the "Program Control" tab on the left side. When that's done, click on the "Programs" tab at the top. Look through the various program listings and find the Live Messenger program listing.. Click once on each of the "question marks" in the row to the right and choose "Allow" for each one which should place a green "Check mark"..

Hope this helps.
