Sorry for all of these program questions, but I'm really new to all of these "how-to's", and I'm not very good at it.

However, my problem with ZoneAlarm is, when I have it on and running in the background, it won't let me get on to the internet. When I turn it off, the computer is able to log back online. Is there something I need to tweak for ZoneAlarm to be able to give me max protection, yet let me acess the internet?

Thanks.

And again, I'm sorry for all these questions. I hope you don't mind. :whistling:

Download the file, click to install, choose clean install, let it install at the default setting

When you first open IE then it should ask for permission

It did ask for permission. I said allow and save option. However, it wouldn't work still.

Comodo Firewall

When you get the license key, use add remove to uninstall ZA

Install Comodo

Some are having trouble with the new version of ZA and cannot run anything above version 6.1.744.1

Last summer, PC Magazine rounded up free personal firewall products from Agnitum, Kerio, Sygate, and Zone Labs. (Symantec has since purchased Sygate and pulled it from the market; Sunbelt has purchased and rebranded the Kerio product.) They all did a decent job, though none was up to the standard of the best for-pay personal firewalls. Comodo Personal Firewall 2.0 brings excitement back to the free-firewall category with a spiffy interface and impressive performance. It protects any Windows 2000 or XP SP2 system from hack attacks, and it blocks unauthorized programs from using the Internet—even programs whose malware-style trickery fooled the other free firewalls.

Or you can do this. Once ZoneAlarm starts up, try right clicking the ZoneAlarm icon on the bottom right corner to see if "Internet lock" is engaged, if it is disabled it.

Hope that helps.
