Hi,
You can ADD the "Zone alarm" executable to your windows startup.
This can be done in 1 simple way.

1. Locate the "Zonealarm.exe" in your "Program files" folder. Usually your Program Files folder will be here "C:\Program Files". Just run a search for "Zonealarm.exe" inside this folder.

2. After locating the "Zonealarm.exe" file, right-click on that file. And select "Create Shortcut".

3. After that you'll find a "Zonealarm.exe" Shortcut file or icon inside the same folder.

4. Just COPY or CUT the shortcut file.

5. Now Right click on the "START" button.

6. Select "Open all users".

7. This will open a windows explorer window. Locate "Programs" folder and Enter it.

8. Inside you should locate "Startup" folder and enter it.

9. Once u ar inside the "Startup" folder, paste the already copied "Zonealarm.exe" shortcut file.

10. That's it. Now try re-starting the system.

Thanks

How do you turn on cookies?


Turn on your computer make sure the Internet connection is working and open an Internet Explorer window. Click on "Tools" in the toolbar and select "Options." This will open the Internet Options window. Click on the tab labeled "Privacy." You should then see a slider bar, along with options on what setting to place the slider on. If your bar is set to "Block all Cookies," "High" and even sometimes "Medium High," your computer will not allow cookies to be added to your system. Setting your zone to "Medium" will allow most cookies and it will give you the ability to block or allow certain cookies manually. You can also choose "Low" or "Accept All Cookies," which will allow cookies to be added to your system without having to manually allow them to be added. Once you have selected the appropriate setting for your zone, click "Apply" to save and then click "Ok" to close the window.

How can i solve system calender problem.I cant fix the date and time.


For immediate results in fixing the date and time on your computer, double click on the taskbar at the bottom of your Windows screen. This is located on the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. The date and time control panel on your computer will automatically open.

Adjust the Properties
Double click the clock. A smaller date and time properties menu will open as soon as you have double clicked on the time at the bottom of your Windows computer screen. To set the date and time on your personal computer, the process is quite simple. You can use your mouse to click on the correct day, month, and year. You will also see an image of a clock on the right-hand side of the properties menu that will display the corrected time that you have entered. When you are pleased with the corrections, simply click on the OK button on your computer screen. Most modern computers automatically adjust for daylight savings, but several older models do not. As a result, you will need to update the time as mentioned.

Time Zone
Adjust the time zone on your computer by clicking once on the time zone tab that is displayed on the same properties menu that opened when you clicked on the clock at the bottom of your computer screen. To set your time zone, you can choose the correct time zone from the drop down menu. Use the small arrow to show the options in the time zone menu on your computer. Once again, you can click OK when you are finished. If you choose to have your computer automatically updated for daylight savings, then be sure that the small box at the bottom of the time zone menu is checked.

I recive message on start the computer "Internet explorer 6 security prihibit runing ActiveX controls" and i do not view the filles, any filles!


Hi there,

cause:

This issue occurs if the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration feature is enabled. By default, the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration feature is enabled in Internet Explorer on Windows Server 2003-based computers.

This enhanced level of security may prevent certain Web sites from displaying as expected in Internet Explorer. For example, programs that require the Web browser may not work as expected because scripts, ActiveX controls, and downloads are disabled.

Resolution:

To resolve this issue, add the following Macromedia Web sites
  • http://www.macromedia.com
  • http://fpdownload.macromedia.com
  • http://sdc.shockwave.com
to the Trusted sites zone in Internet Explorer. To do so, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer (if it is not already running).
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the Security tab.
  4. Under Select a Web content zone to specify its security settings, click Trusted sites, and then click Sites.
  5. In the Add this Web site to the zone box, type http://www.macromedia.com, and then click Add, type http://fpdownload.macromedia.com.
  6. Click Add, type http://sdc.shockwave.com, and then click Add.

    The Macromedia Web sites are displayed in the Web sites list.
  7. Click Close, and then click OK.
Good to know information:

The Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration feature configures several security settings that define how you access Internet and intranet Web sites. The configuration also reduces the exposure of your server to Web sites that may pose a security risk. To log on to a Web site that requires Internet Explorer functionality that is disabled by the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration feature, add that Web site to the Trusted sites zone in Internet Explorer.

For more information about Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration, see the Internet Explorer "Enhanced Security Configuration" Help topic. To do so (on a computer that is running Windows Server 2003), start Internet Explorer, and then on the Help menu, click Enhanced Security Configuration.

Its a known problem. You have to understand their Program Control configurations. Have you set the learning period? It will be a quite long post if I describes it here. So you can check that using this link This is the manual. Read and understand the Program Control Section.
But one more issue.
On Windows systems, screenshots of games and media players sometimes fail, resulting in a blank rectangle. The reason for this is that the graphics are bypassing the normal screen and going to a high-speed graphics processor on the graphics card by using a method called hardware overlay. Generally, there is no way to extract a computed image back out of the graphics card, though software may exist for special cases or specific video cards.
One way these images can be captured is to turn off the hardware overlay. Because many computers have no hardware overlay, most programs are built to work without it, just a little slower. In Windows XP, this is disabled by opening the Display Properties menu, clicking on the "Settings" tab, clicking, "Advanced", "Troubleshoot", and moving the Hardware Acceleration Slider to "None."
Free Software media players may also use the overlay, but often have a setting to avoid that, or dedicated screenshot functions.

After adding the program it may solve this conflict between the Adapter and the Program.

Previous problem with Zone Alarm


The problem occurred because ZAwas not setup properly.
Once you do not chose to block any software that is needed for your network or for your system, the firewall won't give you any trouble.
Just ensure that you authorize all vital software full access through the firewall.

You can download Zone Alarm by clicking here then chosing 'download now'
