Need way to prevent shutdown of ZA
I'm not aware of a way to prevent my children from shutting down ZA by right-clicking the icon on the taskbar. The addition of Parental Controls was great with password protection, however it is virtually USELESS since anyone can shutdown the ZA program, thus allowing freedom to go anywhere they wish. Please add a FIX for this. Thank you!
Re: Need way to prevent shutdown of ZA
Hi! Here is some Very Good Advice from Guru Fax;
parental control is closely link to the fact you protect your ZA with a password. If ZA is protected by a password there is no way for them to close it unless you let kids using your PC on a administrator account (so they may be able to close it by removing it in SAFE MODE).
In other words, if you have set a password and logged out you can't shutdown ZA unless you hack it.
For an effective protection you need:
1. Create a limited user account for your kids;
2. Protect the adminitrator account with a password your kids will not know
2. Protect ZA with a password (ZA overview --> Preferences)
3. Turn ON parental control
Whenever you need to access ZA, input the password and remember to log it out (ZA Overview --> preferences) when finished, otherwise you leave the session open and unprotected.
The above works best on VISTA and Windows 7. These OSs have drastically improved the way different accounts and permission are managed.
