Help - Popups causing problems
I've just updated to the current version - see below.
The problem is that the popup adverts are causing me to drop out of the programs I'm in and return me to the desktop with the advert.
It causes me to die during online gaming and caused me to lose during last minute bidding at an auction.
Is there a way to stop the adverts from overriding whatever program you are in?
ZoneAlarm Free Firewall version: 11.0.000.504
Vsmon version: 11.0.000.504
Driver version: 11.0.000.026
Web Identity Protections version: 1.5.393.22
p.s. Perhaps I should add that I recognise that I am currently using the free version on this machine, so I expect adverts. In the past however, they have not caused problems with other programs.
And I have purchased zonealarm firewall and virus scanner at my workplace for the company.
