There is a message that continues to come up after I have been online for a little while. Its informing me that it is unable to connect to the server. There is no problem with my service, according to my service provider, Verizon DSL. Also, I have noticed that after being online for a while, before that "unable to connect to server" message come up, that I am unable to look at pictures/images. My computer starts X-ing them out.

Have you recently uninstalled ZoneAlarm?

Have you tried rebooting your modem or router?

I don't know what ZoneAlarm is, but I do not think I uninstalled it. Yes, I have tried every sequence of rebooting my computer, moden and router and nothing helps.

What is your operating system? Look in Device Manager for any ! or ?.
