I hope someone can help.

With webshield activated I cannot access Zone Alarm updates or Windows mediaplayer 9 updates. To access these updates I have to go to connection tab in Internet properties and clear the box for uses a proxy server for this connection which is at Updates will come through OK then. I then reset the proxy settings to activate webshield again. Is there anything I can do regarding settings to rectify this problem.

I run Windows98SE, IE6, ZoneAlarm (Free), Avast 4.6.652 home edition

How do you access the updates, exactly? From your web browser (if so, what is the exact URL?) or via the program's user interface?

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

I access the updates via the program's user interface both for Zone Alarm and WindowsMedia Player. Any idea how this update problem can be resolved?

Thank You
