I have this odd problem that I have spent days tring to sort but alas to no avail, so I was hoping some lovely person might be able to help me!
I have trawled the net but can find nothing that is specific to my prob'.
I have been using Zonealarm's free firewall in conjunction with AVG anti virus for years with no problem from either and was happy bunny.
However, after a recent upgrade of zonealarm's firewall things have gone a little crazy.
When the computer is on a little box continually appears stating:
'Zonealarm Browser Security has encountered a problem and neds to close.'
This box has three buttons Debug, Send error report and don't send.
However, you can press any of the buttons with gay abandon and all that happens is the little box goes away for about ten seconds, then it's back. Zonealarm doesn't close at any point. However, my machine grinds away and becomes VERY slow.
If you don't press any of the buttons the box just sits there at the front of the screen and blocks one's view of what ever you are doing! but the machine works perfectly and doesn't run slow or anything.
This doesn't just happen when I am on line it happens all the time the computer is on.
I have uninstalled Zonealarm and reistalled it four times but always the same. In fact the little box appears during the zonealarm intallation.
I have tryed zonealarm's online chat but they are fairly reluctant to help as I am using the free version.
Zonealarm now has antivirus aswell as the firewall but as I have been ok for years with AVG I am reluctant to uninstall it and just rely on an untried Zonealarm.
I have run Malwarebytes but that said my system was free from infection.
I have turned off AVG but that did nothing.
I have uninstalled the zonealarm tool bar but that did nothing.
All articles on the web say zonealarm and AVG should run togethor happily (which they used to).
Any help would be mucho appreciated as I hate being outsmarted by a machine!
Oh I am running on xp pro.
