Zone Alarm and WMP question

Zone Alarm and WMP question

Recently installed the updated freebie version of zone alarm - v 6.0.631.003

Unfortunately this version of ZA is blocking windows media players from playing videos across the net. The previous verson of ZA didn't do this. I can right click and save the target to hard disk and they play just fine. Alternatively, I can temporarilly shut down the firewall if I want to play a vid across the net. So there are ways round it, but neither solution is ideal.

I can't enable the outgoing ports in ZA as the free version doesn't appear to be customizable enough, unless anyone knows differently and can tell me exactly what I need to do?

I can't update WMP from 7.1 which might solve the problem because I'm still using win98 (don't laugh).

Anyone else have this combination of software and know what to do?
