Appreciate your help bennyvo.

My intention was to unblock zonealarm, unfortunately it seems to do it automatically when i turn it back on and was wondering how to go about it?

But may give your program a go.

Thanks again Corey.

Unfortunately I don't think I am able to borrow another modem to do any further tests.

Excuse my ignorance but what does "pm" mean? Would you be able to supply Martin V's email etc in order for my to contact him about downgrading my profile.

Cheers,
Steve

Thanks everybody. I'll give it a go.

I've had a look, but unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be such functionality available? Is there another way round it?
