    Instructions on how to use game mode is given in ZA's help. For your benefit, I will copy and paste the instructions here. Take note that its important to leave the game mode window open in the background(it can be minimised to the taskbar) to ensure that game mode remains on.

    Game Mode
    Game Mode temporarily suppresses most Zone Labs security software scans, product updates, and alerts, so that you can play games on your computer with fewer interruptions. Game Mode lets you temporarily allow or deny all program permission requests, so that Zone Labs security software can answer such requests automatically without displaying alerts. Automatic scans and product updates are postponed until you deactivate Game Mode. Game Mode remains active until you turn it off, or until you turn off Zone Labs security software or your computer.

    Game Mode suppresses all Informational alerts and all alerts in which you are prompted to make a decision. This includes alerts caused by Ask settings in the Programs List, such as permission alerts triggered by programs trying to send mail or act as servers. It also includes OSFirewall alerts, which prompt you to allow or deny behavior considered unusual or suspicious. ID Lock alerts and Outbound Mailsafe alerts are also suppressed. Game Mode settings do not override Block or Allow settings in your Programs List. If you have configured Zone Labs security software to always block a specific program, it continues to block that program even if you activate Game Mode with a setting of Allow.

    The use of Game Mode may reduce the security of your system. If you choose to allow all permission requests, you may increase the chances of a malicious program harming your computer or gaining access to your data. If, on the other hand, you choose to deny all requests, you may interrupt the functions of a legitimate program. You should therefore activate Game Mode only for the duration of your game.

    To turn Game Mode on:

    Right-click on the system tray icon, and choose Game Mode...
    In the Activate Game Mode dialog that appears, click one of the following:
    Answer all alerts with "allow"-Permission requests will be granted.

    Answer all alerts with "deny"-Permission requests will be denied.

    Leave the Activate Game Mode dialog open or minimize it, but do not close it.
    If you close the Activate Game Mode dialog, you turn Game Mode off.

    While Game Mode is on, Zone Labs security software displays a special icon in the system tray ().

    To turn Game Mode off:

    Do one of the following:
    Close the Activate Game Mode dialog by clicking either Cancel or the Close icon (x) at upper right.
    Click Stop Game Mode in the Activate Game Mode dialog.
    Right-click the system tray icon and choose Stop Game Mode.

    Note that Game Mode is automatically deactivated if you turn off your computer or if you turn off Zone Labs security software.
