I go websurfing without a condom. XD I do use the passive protect features of Spybot S+D and do checkups regularly, though. ;)

I was wondering - Does ZoneAlarm block everyone's MSN voicechat, or just mine? ???

Maybe... but I'd rather have a solution that doesn't involve turning off the firewall ;)

It doesnt turn off the firewall, it allows programs to access the internet ;)

...Without any firewall control. Not exactly what I had in mind :-\

But you still haven't answered my question - do you have the same problem? ???

It's not the only way... Whenever I want to use the voicechat, I just go to the log viewer and add the last blocked alert to the Internet Zone. Sure, it's annoying, but at least I don't have to turn off the firewall :-\

Why? ???

It just never worked properly.  It would say connection established, but there would be absolutely no volume.  :(

Turning off program control, doesnt turn off the firewall :)
