Firewall Settings & Google mail

  1. Hi,

    I have Win XP Pro.

    (1) I installed the new version of Zone Alarm Pro and now I can not open Pdf attachments that I get in my google e mails. It did not happen in previous version.

    I tried to make changes in firewall settings but it does not help. Shutting down the firewall completely does allow me to download pdf attachment so it is the firewall causing this.

    Please help.

    (2) How do I remove the automatic user names & passwords that stored when I open my google mail loogging dialog box ?

    Thanks much.

    Try downloading them to your pc instead of opening them

    This is part of the browser, which browser you use affects how you clear the data.

    Some firewalls control both the network access (ie: source + dest addresses and the ports being used)
    and the applications making the request

    Comodo does this and perhaps Zone Alarm does too.
