I recently installed the free version of Zone Aalrm Firewall and now, at times, I can't access my bank website.

Any suggestions on how I can remedy this? It's irksome!

I also use the ZoneAlarm firewall, however it is not the free version, and I never have trouble accessing any banks website, or any other site.

Are you sure it is caused by the firewall? Other than this happening after you installed, what makes you think it is the firewall causing this.

I cannot think of any reason it would be the firewall causing that, especially since it seems it does not happen all the time.

Check the default setttings...or uninstall it, use the XP firewall...or a different 3d-party firewall (there are plenty of options).

Just today, I decided to sto using Sunbelt Firewall (which I've used various versions of for at least the last 6 years or so) because I realized that the current version prevents my home network from functioning properly and the firewall eliminates some webpage connections (links on a given webpage) because they have ads on them.

In essense, 3d-party firewalls provide a bit more control than the XP firewall...but the XP firewall is sufficient for users like me or those who really aren't interested in controlling their systems more than is necessary ;).
