Zone alarm requests ...

Q: Zone alarm requests ...

Hi folks

Just a quick question ..... Zone Alarm has asked me whether or not to allow these two items access to the Internet. A Motive Cursor Daemon and NetBios. The Net Bios request has come up a couple of times, and I've been denying it so far, on the basis that denying it doesn't seem to be causing any problems. But I'd still like to know whether to deny or allow permanently. The Daemon is a newbie

As always, thanks for your help

Preferred Solution: Zone alarm requests ...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Zone alarm requests ...

The Daemon program should be some kind of virtual drive program (if I'm not wrong). I would Deny access to both. To avoid this nuisance, check the box at the bottom to remember the settings. If anything, you can go back into ZoneAlarm and change the permissions again if needed.

Only allow access to programs that you know. If anything goes wrong, try giving the program access (it may be valid).

I have gone through all the steps to clean and protect my computer (Windows XP Dell) and thought I was really clever. Took me best part of a day. However, my partner can't now connect to the internet from his laptop, (also running Windows XP), and I am about to fall asleep trying to suss out how to find the IP address of the laptop to add to the trusted zone of Zone Alarms: which keeps flashing up messages that various addresses are trying to access my ports!! Help, before I lose all credibility. My computer is now trussed up like a turkey, and I am about to become single again. My computer is about to become disposable.Computer dunce (PS - read the tutorials about TCP and UDP.

A:Unable To Add Laptop To Trusted Zone In Zone Alarm

I'm in the same situation, and have learned a few things. Go to Start > Run >cmd. In the black box, type ipconfig. This will give you the ip address of the computer you're on, as well as the gateway ip address of the wireless router. I also have zonealarm firewall, so I added the ip address to the trusted zone. You may also want to check your wireless router's info because depending on the security you've set, it may ask you for a code (WEP or WPA). Let's start here and see what happens. Sounds like this will be one for many inputs...

I have been really happy with the security that Zone Alarm has offered me so far, but I do have a few gripes with it as of late. If I try to open Firefox while Zone Alarm is running, I will get a "this page cannot be displayed" type error. Same thing if I use Internet Explorer. If I keep refreshing or restarting Internet Explorer it will eventually work. Only them am I able to open Firefox and get it to connect (let me know if that doesn't make any sense). Sometimes I have to shut down Zone Alarm to connect to the internet on either browser and this gets quite annoying. I want to keep the security it brings, but it can e quite a hassle. It also either takes forever or won't allow me to log in to websites like MySpace.com. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

A:help with zone alarm pro

Hiya

f-secure is an anti-virus program, whereas Zone Alarm is just a firewall. What was the problems that you had with those two?

However, did you fully remove f-secure? If you're not sure, take a look at this:

http://support.f-secure.com/enu/home/downloads/removeav.shtml

Do you have ZoneAlarm Pro 3 or 4?

can't link to this bit, but can copy/paste:

First, check in the upper right-hand corner of the ZoneAlarm Window. You should see an “All Systems Active” message in green letters (to the right of the lock). If the panel is displaying “All systems Active” and ZoneAlarm is still not functioning properly, it is possible that some files have become corrupt. To repair this problem, please follow the steps in this article.

Running Zone Alarm 9.1 (free version) and just got a pop-up saying it said New Network Found and listed an IP address I'm not sure of. And lists a type: Public Network Detected.

Then it gives a choice of selecting whether to keep it in the Internet Zone or Allowing it into the Trusted Zone. Then I can also Name this new network (optional). Then Okay or Cancel.

Is this something new or has someone hacked into my computer and is trying to connect to the internet some other way?

P.S. The box is still up asking for this permission and not sure whether to allow it or not. Or again, have I been hacked?

A:Zone Alarm Pop-up

I do not know for sure you have been hacked but I would not allow it. Obviously it is not a connection you were making so deny it.

Any time you are not the one who initiated something on your computer, do not allow it to continue

Hey folks,
I've never seen this before. Upon the advice of one of our own malware experts, I was advised to use a different firewall than the default windows one. I was so unlucky as to choose Zone Alarm free 9. This application has done nothing but reeked havoc on my applications including screen reading apps I need just to get around the computer since I've been blind all of my life as most of you may know. In fact I can't do anything with internet explorer since ZA throws up an alert and my screen reader can't read it. I tried several ways to get rid of the alerts until I find an accessible firewall that doesn't kill my essentials. I have tried using Win Patrol to delete the file that causes the alerts to pop up, I tried uninstalling ZA completely with Revo Uninstaller first, and now ever since, when uninstalling it, I constantly get the message that one of it's files is missing. I can't delete the program files folder directory since the dang thing is running. How do I get this thing out of my way? MSConfig doesn't even allow it to terminate when unchecking it in the list. any input would be great.

Many thanks,
Chromebuster

You have both versions of XP so do you have a dual boot setup to choose which OS you use or does it work some other way? Is it possible that the duplication of OS's is part of the problem (I don't have XP so I don't know how you would go about setting up accounts etc. in each version).

Have you looked at this MS article about problems following SP2;http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=884130&product=windowsxpsp2 and have you disabled the XP firewall?

Also test your speed at more then one speed site because some will work better with your firewall then others.

A:Zone Alarm

Hiya

If a program is trying to get out, then most of the time, yes. But there are some exceptions. However, you may want to use AddAware, as if the spyware cannot access the Web, some of your programs may not work:

go here and download AddAware http://tomcoyote.com/lsindex.html

Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net. If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.

Since I had my laptop set for Automatic Updates I received SP2 last night. Seems like it has more security features - supposedly better firewall, popup blocker, etc. And so far it seems to be working fine. But I noticed in the SP2 Security Center info there's a list of programs that won't work with SP2 for various reasons. Zone Alarm is on the list. I've read more about Zone Alarm, and although I tried it before and didn't like it, I might like to try it again. It gets really good reviews. And I'd like to return my ActiveX settings to Default since I continually get warnings. But what about interacting with SP2? And what about any other firewall product interacting with SP2?

Need some experienced advice (that's a given in this group!).

Thanks in advance -

I leave my computer on all the time. After a prolonged period with no use, ZA locks me out of the internet. I have to shut down ZA and start it up again. Is there any setting to prevent this?

A:Zone Alarm

wiggin , If memory serves me right ( i did use zone alarm at one time , but don't any longer ) there is a setting that locks your pc after a period of inactivity , although in saying that , if it's being used it would be just a case of hitting your keyboard to de-activate it.

Anyway have a look to see if it's the culprit by opening ZA and choosing "program control" in the left hand pane and checking that the automatic lock is not enabled.

Dear All,
Since downloading new service pack 2for windows XP (9 hours!!) I have noticed that Zone Alarm is acting weird? All programmes under the column 'Access' have the red cross (block) against them and all programmes under the column 'server' have a green tick (allow) Left clicking to bring the allow/ask/block option brings up the choices box, but clicking on them changes nothing??
My PC is running fine apart from that, but windows messenger keeps connecting without asking etc?
Any ideas
Many Thanks C

What version do you have?

There are reported problems with ZA and SP2, but only some versions are mentioned here:

Also you may have to check the XP2 Firewall settings and see what is being blocked or allowed there. Try disabling it and see if the problem continues with ZA

Hello,
Since I have downloaded Zone Alarm, I have to say, I am quite impressed, it has blocked a lot and has certainly blocked out a lot of viruses, because I havent picked up 1 yet since I got it. My problem is, since I got Zone Alarm (right now I am using the Pro until the trial runs out), I have noticed a lot of "Page Cannot Be Displayed" pages. When I find that page, I just go to ZA, click privacy, then go to the site list tab, add the site, then allow third party cookies, is that how I suppose to do it? Anyways, I tried this for eBay, and it isnt working. I can search stuff fine, but for some reason, when I click confirm bid, it says page cannot be displayed. It also happens when I try to visit http://www.thecardboardvillage.com , and when i try to add it, it says it cant find it. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks
Pat

Zone Alarm is a good program and I have used it for quite some time now. But, yesterday I upgraded to the latest version 3.1 ( I believe) and I had nothing but problems with my system from the 1st minute I started trying to use it.

The best version they came out with was 2.6.362 and I will never upgrade again.

Trust me once I did the upgrade nothing worked right on my system.

Luckily, I had my system ghosted on the back partition. So, I ghosted it back to the way it was, took me all of 6 minutes, and everything is fine now.

So, just a warning. Don't upgrade to the new 3.1 version.

Good luck,

Laffctx
