Re: ZoneAlarm Gives Issues. Need Other Software


I do not know what type of issue you mean, but I have some problems with
ZoneAlarm. It works fine on other systems, XP 2000 or etc.. but when I
install it on my 2003 Server R2, after the installation is done and I
restart my system, it does not let my system boot up.. I mean, the
system boots up but before reaching the graphic mode it restarts
again.. if I go ahead and uninstall zonealarm in safe mode and restart
it lets windows boot up.. I need to use my zonealarm with this
server... is there any service that I should disable or do something to
solve this issue..?

Thanks,,

Why that? I have not heard of any server which absolutely required
ZoneAlarm or any other software firewall to run on it.

Re: ZoneAlarm Gives Issues. Need Other Software


Well, I don't know either.. thats why i'm asking what could be the
reason.. This thing just happens,, I have re installed the OS 4 times
and ive tried to install zonealarm as the first software which gets
installed on it or maybe 2nd ,,, all 4 times it does the same... my
windows copy is ok... I can update it with microsoft.. and my zone
alarm is ok as well...(tested on other oses) oh one more thing,,
firefox.. the latest version. 2.0.0.11 ,, gets installed no problem,,
and when you run it,, it is just like a ghost of the browser ,,, i mean
its like its open but you can see your desktop and the only thing you
can see to find out that the browser is open is either the address bar
on the top, or the cose, restore and minimize buttons on top right hand
side,, or of course seeing the active window on taskbar...

I'm really getting crazy,,, this is win 2003 R2.. and doesn't matter if
i install updates on it and then install zone alarm or i dont install
the updates and zone alarm be the first software after clear OS
installation, it reboots the system..

Then why do you install ZoneAlarm? You know it causes these problems.
Isn't that enough reason for you not to use it?

Plus: why do you want to use ZoneAlarm anyway? What is the purpose of
running ZoneAlarm on a server? A properly administered server won't
need ZoneAlarm nor any other software firewall.

Gerald

P.S.: Is donotspam.com your domain? Is the sender address really your
e-mail address? If not, please stop using fake e-mail addresses in
other people's domains. Thank you.

Re: ZoneAlarm Gives Issues. Need Other Software


Gerald,
Thank you for your effort to give some solutions here..I admire your
sense of "i don't know what to name it" ..
but:
First of all, your solution is not an answer to me! Just wiping out the
question does not mean that the problem is solved!! For any reason i
need to use zone alarm on this server,, maybe i'm not using the server
functionalities but other networking features i need to implement them
,,, some that are unavailable on XP!! maybe I just need to use this
software bro.. solution should be something else,, and believe me... If
i knew it I wouldn't post my question here,,, I already knew the answer
of " DON'T USE ZoneAlarm" but still the problem exists.. if that was
going to be the human's way of thinking we were still struggling
calculating 24 x 56 using Abacus....

p.s: Rgdg the email address: no sir,, that is not my email... that is
generated by techarena ,,, my email address is: armens78***********...
BTW,, we're here to discuss about computer questions we have ,, not to
fight or telling people what ot do and what not to do "ON PEOPLE's
Domain"

I am not wiping out the question. I am wiping out the problem.
ZoneAlarm is causing the problems. If you want to use broken software
promising miracles it is up to you. But in that case you should ask in
a ZoneAlarm forum where everybody shares your believe.

I only see:

1. ZoneAlarm causes problems on your computer.
2. You don't need ZoneAlarm on any computer.

Conclusion: Deinstall ZoneAlarm. Problem solved.

> need to use zone alarm on this server,, maybe i'm not using the server
> functionalities but other networking features i need to implement them


Still you don't need ZoneAlarm for that either.

> ,,, some that are unavailable on XP!! maybe I just need to use this


ZoneAlarm won't implement those either.

> software bro.. solution should be something else,, and believe me... If

You have been presented with a solution. If you want another solution
you'll have to wait if someone comes up with one or you have to ask in
a forum where you are more likely to get an answer which you like
more. Though in general I think "like" is not a good measure for
computer security...

> of " DON'T USE ZoneAlarm" but still the problem exists.. if that was


I thought the problems start after you install ZoneAlarm. Not
installing ZoneAlarm would be an efficient solution.

Why are you struggling with artificial problems created by yourself?
It is you who insists on running ZoneAlarm which does not work well
with your OS. As there is no need to run ZoneAlarm or any other
software firewall on any computer you create your own problems...

> Domain"


Incorrect. If someone spams someone else's domain because you use
someone else's e-mail address as sender address it is a matter of
decency to point that out. It has nothing to do with telling someone
what to do or not to do. If someone insists on spamming other people's
domains or someone else's e-mail address I find that pretty
unacceptable by any means. That was the whole intention of my
remark. As the e-mail address is board generated it does not apply
to you. Thus there is no need to discuss this any further. Many other
people in usenet groups unfortunately use faked e-mail addresses and
don't seem to know or care...
