    I've been using my computer a lot lately. Everyday around 4:30 pm, my firewall repeatedly gives an error: "Kerio firewall cannot connect to service". If I ignore the error my computer locks up. If I quickly reboot, I'm find for the rest of the evening until the next day at around 4:30 pm. I'm stumped here. Does Verizon DSL do something between 4 and 5 pm every day that would mess me up? Does anyone have any ideas? I've checked with Sunbelt, the firewall manufacturer and no one else seems to be getting this error.

    I'm running:
    XP pro
    Firefox
    Thunderbird
    Vipre antivirus
    Kerio firewall

    Thanks for your help.

    I use to use Kerio and I think once a every 24 hours Kerio connects to the server to check for any updates.

    Check Vipre (which by the way is an excellant antivirus) and see if somehow it isn't blocking Kerio.

    Thanks for the hint. I disabled the automatic update in Kerio and haven't had a problem since.
