    I have now gone to DSL and am enjoying high speed. I am, however, having a problem with Zone Alarm (zlsSetup_70_302_000_en.exe) which I did not have with dial-up. I am using DSL modem Embarq 660, Internet Explorer 7 and Windows XP Home Edition with SP2.

    It’s no big deal but has anyone encountered the following problem?

    After I have been on the internet for more than 2 hours on one connection (for example listening to a radio station), I cannot connect to Outlook Express or re-connect to another website without disabling Zone Alarm, even though the Internet Lock on Zone Alarm is not On.

    I have the same problem if the computer and the modem have been left on for several hours without being connected to the web in any way.

    To reconnect with Internet Explorer or Outlook express I thus have to either

    1) Turn both the computer and the modem off
    or simply
    2) Disable Zone Alarm (and, for safety, turn the Microsoft XP Firewall back on)
