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.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
