    Hi,
    Have you updated Zone Alarm? It has been interfering with chkdsk lately for some people.

    The best update for ZoneAlarm is to remove it and get a better firewall!

    Mark,

    I've always heard that ZoneAlarm was one of the best. What do you recommend?

    Thanks.

    I am rabidly anti-ZA because I have had strange problems time and again with it. It does work for most people but I refuse to use it. My personal preference is Sygate Personal Firewall because of its well-balanced mix of firewall and anti-intrusion features. Norton Internet Security is also very good.
