Zone Labs and the latest Windows security update

5 posts in this topic

Has anybody else had major problems after installing the latest security update ? I installed Wed. morning and right away could not access the internet until I shutdown Zone Labs. This evening I went thru every program within Zone Labs and allowed access and still would not let me on the internet so I removed the security update and now there are no more problems but I have to turn off my automatic updates because I don't want this update on my computer until Microsoft or Zone Labs fixes the bug.

Jim,

if you open zone alarm and go to the firewall tab, then drag the slider down to medium that is the temporary fix.

It is also listed on the zone alarm web site.

It worked for me after i was blaming the phone company for their problem with the DSL grin

The lady was nice enought to point out the issue with microsoft update and had me shut it down to see if that was the issue.

Guessing zone alarm will be out with updates in the next couple days to rectify the situation.

I would let the update install, because from what the phone company IT lady told me was that this patch plugged a big hole in the microsoft system. Then zone alarm didn't know what to do, so it locked everything up (when it is on HIGH security setting).

For what it's worth, yesterday I overheard at a gas station that a gal with ZoneAlarm was having troubles with her firewall.

I only bring this up, which I believe Mule would have already confirmed with his post, but that it points to a ZoneAlarm problem rather than your own equipment or phone company problem.

Which, since ZA already seems to have a fix out for it, that they would have realized the same thing.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light.
