View Full Version : Skymedia 200D and Zone Alarm

Hi,
Today I got my satellite internet service with ihug and the SkyMedia-200D card.
Everything worked well, but it wouldn't work with my modem and receiving data.
(I can get a satellite reception and that, but when I dail-up it stops and fails to work).
The installer said that ZoneAlarm puts a lock on your hardware (except for your modem), that stops the satellite from working (by satellite I mean that it can't receive). Even after you uninstall ZoneAlarm (which I did, ASAP), it is still there, and the only way to get rid of it is to format your hard drive.
Is this true? I have the adequite (more than) system requirements for the serivce, although my computer may not be in tip-top shape it does work.
How do I get rid of these locks?
What else could be affecting it?
I'm running Windows Me, 96megs of ram, 200MHz processor.

Thanks,
Philip Q
