<br>Sam, I had the same problem and worse with POP3 and Netscape mail on
an XP Pro machine. After an excellent, helpful msg from Tim Peters
("Re: [Spambayes] I'm running into a resource conflict; SpamBayes freezes
my system" on 30 Jun 04), I went the ZoneAlarm tech support route.
<p>They had me do a clean uninstall and revert to version 4.5.594.000 of
ZoneAlarm, which works seamlessly with SpamBayes. They said they
were aware of the issue with their 5.x release and were working on it,
but that it might be the >next< release before they had it solved.
<p>So, for now, I simply ignore the automatic ZoneAlarm pleadings to upgrade
to the latest version.
<p>Tim, I had meant to send the list a follow-up after ZoneAlarm gave me
the workaround, but I failed to do so until now.
<p>Thank you again for the terrific help -- and for the terrific product.
<font face="Arial"><font size=-1>I've
been using SpamBayes version 1.0rc2 (or is it 0.6?) configured in proxy
mode for a couple of weeks. My email client is Outlook Express.
I receive a lot of email in numerous accounts, and after training it initially
with about 2000 good messages and 2000 spam messages it is doing a really
great job of identifying spam.</font></font> <font face="Arial"><font size=-1>However
the following sometimes happens when I attempt to do further training.
Often, but not always, W2K stops responding normally after clicking on
Review Messages. The browser launches to a white screen, but never gets
to the point of displaying the normal training page. I cannot
launch new applications. Some applications already active will respond,
but will not Close.</font></font> <font face="Arial"><font size=-1>Ctrl-Alt-Del
initially brings up its normal window, after clicking on Task Manager the
normal desktop reappears, but the task manager window never appears. Subsequent
ctrl-alt-del requests are ignored.</font></font> <font face="Arial"><font size=-1>The
only clue comes after trying to shut down Zone Alarm. After a timeout
period, it displays this message: "ZoneAlarm is waiting for the TrueVector
Internet Monitor to unload". Clicking on Cancel in this dialog box
is ignored, the window remains.</font></font> <font face="Arial"><font size=-1>Eventually
nothing responds except mouseover messages on the task bar, and a hard
reset of the PC is necessary. In 4 years of using W2K I have never
known anything which will lock up W2K to this degree.</font></font> <font face="Arial"><font size=-1>Help
please!!</font></font> <font face="Arial"><font size=-1>Sam Nicholls</font></font></blockquote>
