Running Windows 98SE on a laptop. Can not access internet except by uninstalling Sygate, running WinsockFix, and installing Sygate. The internet connection works fine until I power down the computer and restart. Then I cannot access the internet again. When I uninstall Sygate and run WinsockFix I still can not access the interenet before reinstalling Sygate.
Any suggestions

While you are able to connect, download an older version of the free ZoneAlarm that's compatible with Win98SE. It's on this page:
http://www.oldversio...am.php?n=zalarm

Click on the version 6.1.744.1 (higher versions are not compatible).
First remove Sygate, then install ZoneAlarm. Confirm you are still able to connect, and if yes, reboot and check again.

This suggestion is based entirely on the possibility that Sygate firewall may be the cause of the problem, so my apologies if it doesn't solve it.

Somehow my reply seems to have been lost. So here it is again. When I uninstall Sygate and reboot I am still not able to connect. I do not believe installing Zone Alarm will solve this, but of course I could be wrong. I believe this is caused somehow by the Windows files.
