I´ve downloaded and installed Zone Alarm Free, and since I´ve done it I have a lot of alerts, some trying to reach the BIOS, some asking permission to connect Windows Explored. Most ofe the times I have this Gator program trying to reach the net or the save one. I´ve trashed them but I can´t empty the trash. The only way to connect to the net (via ADSL) or recieve my emails is to shut down Zone Alarm. The progams are not listed in "install uninstall programs either". How can I get rid of them? Thanks, Herman.
