I turned my windows firewall off, as ive got zone alarm now, but on my security status it says CHECK STATUS, i use to have ZoneAlarm firewall, it said firewall on, ive just reinstalled windows, and im not sure how to get it to say ON as it says my ZoneAlarm is unknown.

Hello samuel3,

It has been my experience that windows security centre is not that great, saying my programs were out of date or not working. My solution was to disable it.

The bar in firefox, have you tried reinstalling FF?
Regards,

Alan.

Ive fixed the secuirty status thing, by doing a restart, its just the ZoneAlarm spyware blocker, now but ill just unistall that, as FireFox is very safe.

Can you look at the addons in FF, there may be a conflict.
