LDTate helped me rid my computer of some mal ware two days ago. After following his instructions, ie: new restore point, rebooting, re-setting browser, etc., I had a glich with my shortcut icons (some having the wrong logo) Then I downloaded ZonedOut as suggested, but did not figure out how to use it. Well, the icons went back to normal without my intervention, and then the zonedout icon went generic. When I tried to open it, the computer could not locate it. I did a properties on it and copied the location, after I did that, it disappeared and I can find no trace of it. Is this thing safe, is this a normal hiccup? weird

Hi, Do you mean Zone Alarm or was it actually ZonedOut you installed? Its important that you only have one anti virus running (Active in memory) at a time. (more than one will most likely quarrel!) Also it's usually OK to be behind a hardware firewall (such as is found in most ADSL Router/Gateway/ Access Points, and have a 2 way software firewall running as well, but not more than one of them otherwise they could quarrel as well!

It was zonedout which when I downloaded it, was simply a device of somekind that would allow me to transfer multiple sites to my banned list from their website of known bad sites. (which I never had the chance to do)

It was from the list of suggested things to do in my completed or resolved problem before.

Here is where it was in my system:

"C:\Documents and Settings\Leonard Roe\Local
Settings\Temporary Internet
Files\Content.IE5\G82MKBBP\ZonedOut[1]\ZonedOut"

This is the page I downloaded it from:
http://www.funkytoad...ent/view/15/33/

Now it has disappeared, and I cannot find any trace of it.

Probably no big deal (I hope)
