Ok me and steve were writing emails back and forth testing stuff and trying to see why zonealarm was restricting the site with very low settings..
well anyway i found out what it was.
When using Zone Alarm PRO. Click on PRIVACY. and then you will see a list of websites. Scroll over to Tomshardware and then go to the "PRIVATE HEADER" column, You will notice an X. ... then left Click on the X, then click "ALLOW" you will now see a green CHECK.
then go back and refresh your page or just go and make a post you should be fine.
by the way. If you click PRIVACY and you see cookie control, and like a slide bar for OFF,MED,HIGH that means you are not set on SITELIST. Look over to your upper right and you will see 3 tabs, "main" "site list" "cache Cleaner" click on SITE LIST.
