PSI is giving me alerts for both Firefox and Java. However, when I go to the sites to download the fixes, the downloads stop less than halfway through and simply disappear off the screen. Any ideas as to the cause and/or fixes. I am using ZoneAlarm Security Suite and Firewall but there is no indication that this is causing the issue. Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Does the download interrupt only when using the download links through the PSI or also when downloading files in your webbrowser generally?

Hello Norm ,

I use ZAISS and have it set with high security options . I have the latest version on my XP SP3 system with Firefox as default (and recognised as such by the PSI) and Chrome (Dev Channel) .

The only problem I have encountered between ZA and the PSI is where the Component control setting

:: go to GUI->Program Control->Main->Program Control->Custom->Component control ::

is set to enabled .

This can cause the PSI not to be able to use the (embedded) IE engine to get to M$ updates which is essential to run an accurate scan ; this shows in the "error log/scan message " on the scan page/tab .

I cannot say if this affects update solutions , other than probably M$ solutions which also need IE , as I seldom use the PSI solution itself ; if I do it selects Ff and the download/update runs correctly . If I ever need it :eg: for M$updates , I only run IE(8) using the Ff or Chrome "IE Tab" extensions .

Hope this is useful regarding the Zone Alarm part to your post .

Take care
