Does the Vista machine connect via wireless, via a router or directly to the
cable modem? If the either of the former, does connecting directly to the
modem resolve the behavior?

How does the WinXP machine connect? If you connect the Vista machine the
same way and in the same location, does the behavior persist?

If you install IE7 (which can be uninstalled, returning the machine to IE6)
on the WinXP machine, do you see the same behavior? (I can't imagine that
it would but YMMV.)

Certificates update, I recommend installing it to take full advantage of
IE7's additional security.]

The MS newsgroups accessed via the Community web-interface have been having
bizarre issues since early Jan-08. I dunno what's wrong or when it'll be
fixed. MS ain't talking about it.

These issues have not affected NNTP (newsreader) access and I recommend that
you do so. Click on the following link to open the IE General newsgroup in
your default newsreader (e.g., Windows Mail):

Wow - allot of info below, but here (to the best of my ability) are the
responses.

The Vista machine, even though it's a desktop, connects via a wireless
router. The XP machine is directly connected to the same router. I can try
connecting the Vista machine directly but given that this problem seems to be
reletively recent (less than 1 month) and they've been connected this way for
almost a year it doesn;t make sense.

While I'd like to "test" the XP machine by installing IE7, I cannot. That
is my work PC and we have VERY stringent rules - i.e. (no pun intended) I
cannot install any software of my own. P.S. We've been specifically reminded
of that rule with respects to IE7 (?)

I'm currently using ZoneAlarm Security Suite adn have been for almost a year:


ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:7.1.078.000
TrueVector version:7.1.078.000
Driver version:7.1.078.000
Anti-virus engine version:3
Anti-virus signature DAT file version:20080129162000
Anti-spyware engine version:5.0.189.0
Anti-spyware signature DAT file version:01.200801.3235
AntiSpam version:5.0.0.8843

Thanks to everyone for trying to help me with this issue. All of your quick
responses are, well, impressing the hell out of me.

Thanks

I'm still in the process of running a search on the whole PC for anything
"temp" to try to find out whrer this stuff is being stored.

thanks again

Everything in my previous reply notwithstanding, other Vista (and WinXP)
users have seen similar unexpected and seemingly unresolvable problems using
ZA Security Suite.

While tweaking the ZA suite's settings may resolve your issues, you may want
to test by (1) uninstalling ZA Security Suite (after making sure you know
your Product ID in case you wish to reinstall), (2) enabling the Windows
Firewall, (3) Resetting IE again [I know, but...], and then (4) installing
another Vista-compatible anti-virus application.*

I'd especially recommend trying the above if (1) the WinXP machine is not
running ZA Security Suite and/or (2) if connecting the Vista machine
directly to the modem does not resolve the unwanted behavior.
=====
* I can highly recommend NOD32 and Kaspersky (both offer 30-day free trials;
both include a firewall). If cost is a factor, you might consider either
Avira AntiVir or Avast4 (both free; I do not recommend AVG AV).
