Hopefully somebody can help me out
I recently updated my ZoneAlarm (Free version) to the 6.0.667.000 one, and somewhere in the update, it asked me if I wanted it to automatically clear out my cookies, with some new
thingy called *Smart Defence* to which I must have clicked 'Yes'
instead of 'No', becuz ever since I'm having troubles going to Websites I've previously visited, as well as to signing in to some of the sites I'm a member of too
Even on my TVListings site, Zap2it.com.
When I try to access or sign in to these sites, a message will pop up telling me that my browser doesn't allow cookies,or that my cookies are disabled!
(I usually use Explorer 6 when surfing the web, and I also
have Windows 98 SE)
Or else it will let me sign in, but won't stay signed in
If I try to access the same sites with Netscape, it works fine on
some sites, although extremely slow, and sometimes freezes up, as I still have an old old version (4.5 I think).
I'm afraid to update my Netscape as I'm in fear of losing everything (that happened to me previously while defraging, becuz
unbeknownst to me, someone had put harddrive dividers in, and I
lost everything on my whole computer! My computer guy got rid
of the divider thingys, but I still have my fears
But that's a whole different problem that I'll have to address some other time
So I prefer to surf with Explorer 6 while using Netscape 4.5 for my email account
(I haven't had any troubles signing into my main Netscape email
account, nor Webmail using Explorer
I've tried to figure out a way to change my settings/preferences on ZoneAlarm for this Smart Defense thingy, but not even the
Program Wizard icon shows on the page
I have even scoured the 'Help' section, but it seems to only address the ZoneAlarm
Pro (Pay Version) on there
I've also posted on the ZoneAlarm site, but no help from anyone
I'm just trying to find out what section it is on FREE ZoneAlarm for me to change the 'Cookie' thingy, so that I can go back to controlling them myself
(I'm guessing that will solve my troubles
On my Internet Explorer 6 page, I have gone to the 'Tools' , then 'Internet Options', and 'Privacy', and on 'Advanced' tabs and have checked the 'Override Automatic Cookie Handling' box, changed the Cookies section to 'Prompt', and then only *sometimes* can I get into the sites after that, but not often
It's driving me crazier than I already am!
Might you possibly have any clues on how I can change/fix my
FREE version of ZoneAlarm??
(Oh how I wished I had never updated it, I had absolutely
no troubles like this before
And the silly thing is, I still have Cookies showing up on
my Temporary Internet File anyways, that I have to still clear
off manually, so much for *Smart Defense**
ThanX very much for your time
Take care, Agent Extremis
