I'm not sure what to say. As a freebie ZA user, I don't know if reporting it would get any feedback. There's at least a dozen program Pro versions I'd love to try, if I had $40 to $50 for each, which I don't. Here's my latest theory. I uninstalled ZA, and only then, after thinking for months that Spybot Search & Destroy's updater was defective, was it finally able to download an update, and found 73 bits of spyware. I deleted them. Today, I got on and PortExplorer showed over 100 ports running, but I could not even get on the internet, so I shut down and rebooted, then ran and updated Spybot S&D, and it found 9 more bits of spyware and deleted them, and PortExplorer showed much more normal action. I'm wondering if ZA had formerly been shutting down internet access because of the hidden spyware, but not sure. I just installed Spyware Blaster, which prevents spyware from installing. Then I updated Stinger and ran it but found nothing. I've also been trying to configure GhostSurf Pro, which I just installed, and it can inhibit web surfing if it's set too secure and you try to go to an invasive site. So sorting things out is a little hectic. But I definitely credit ZA with some of this. A tech support guy at TDS-3 told me to download and try a firewall called Kirio 4, at www.kerio.com, which gives the private home user the Pro version free for 30 days and then a more limited freeware version keeps working indefinitely. He thinks it's a pretty good firewall so I'm thinking of checking it out. --- "mep biff15923-at-lcsys.net |24hoursupport@xxxxxxxxxxxxx|" <15roi1d1650t@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: Did you report it ?
