Not Using Zone alarm KB951748 shutsdown network connect


M

Mark

KB951748 shuts down my ability to connect to the network. I have searched the
Registry for Zone Alarm keys, general Directories for Zone alarma DB's and or
file. No Zone Alarm products running that I can discern.

Windows XP-media center, SP2, Windows Live One care firewall.

I continue to "unload" KB951748 after it installs through auroupdates. IS
thereany other known comflict for the KB in question other than the ZOne
Alarm product?

Does Windows Live care firewall use a form of Zone Alarm?

Thnak you.

Is there any reason you're using the Live Care firewall instead of the
built-in XP firewall? Is the built-in firewall disabled in place of
the live card Firewall?

You are rcorrect. The XP firewall is in place and Livecare firewall is off.

Do you know of an adjustment or tweak to change the XP firewall to allow KB
951 to operate?

Thnak you.

It's goofy that it's even causing you this headache after it
installed. What you could do is uninstall and ask Windows update to
not automatically install it but the caveat is that you'd not be
wholly protected by what the DNS patch fixes. Seems only some ISP are
patching the issue these days so you can't really count on them fixing
the DNS bug and reducing your risk were you to uninstall it. It's also
possible to uninstall it and use a registry tweak to make sure the DNS
is querying the correct IP so as to not be vulnerable to cache
poisoning.

If you want to try it out, give this a shot:

1. Start > Run > type Regedit and press OK
2. Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters
3. See if you have a key named QueryIpMatching
4. If it happens to be there, it's very likey it's set to 0
(disabled). You'll want it to be set to 1 (enabled)
5. If it does not exist, right-click in the settings pane (on the
right), choose New > DWORD Value, for the value put QueryIpMatching
and press OK.
6. Click twice on the new entry and set the value to 1.

It's a slightly less certain defense against DNS Cache Poisoning than
the actual patch but at least you'll be protected.

Let me know how it goes.

The issue occurs o matter which firewall I invoke. It seems strange that no
thers have this issue with XP\Media Center SP2.

Sure. Any reason for not upgrading to SP3 yet? Just curious.
