Zone Alarm firewall forgets!

by Andruonium / March 26, 2006 9:58 AM PST

I keep getting asked by ZA firewall to allow access to programs I have repeatedly "allowed" in the past, i.e. "Firefox is trying to access the internet..." I read in a forum that I have to allow for more time during shut down for XP to save all my settings but I can't find that forum now when I need it. Can someone help me?

I am using an HP Pavilion 750c: 1.8 Ghtz, 80 GB, 512 DDR with Windows XP Home with spk 2, Zone Alarm Security Suite, Mozilla Firefox, etc...

In all my time i have never worked on a system that was running Zone Alarm that did'nt have problems, Its unsecure and week and in my option, very pourly written. If you love it that much yeah update it to the latest version, but for my clients and for you I would be getting a better firewall.
