Are you using internet explorer? My suspension is that it's ie is doing that. There are two things you can do to fix it:
1. Go to http://mozilla.org and get download Mozilla which is 500% better than ie. It's totally open source and does not contain any of the security holes that piece of crap micro$oft calls a browser does. Plus, it tons of new features that make it reign over IE.
2. Get Kerio 2.1.5 firewall which is about 500% better than ZA. It too is free :)
