    Default Zone Alarm Pop-up Alert Message Takes Focus

    is there a way to turn this off?

    it's gotten really annoying ever since i've installed zone alarm, when one of my computer programs decide to connect to the internet sometimes i'm chatting or typing an e-mail and the alert message pops up instantly taking focus. when i type it's fairy quick and when i hit the space bar it immediantly assumes that i denied or accepted access...

    does anyone know how to solve this?

    thanks

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:6.5

    Inetuseraaa, you can turn off informational alerts in the Alerts and Logs tab but program alerts and OS firewall alerts will still be displayed. You can also enable game mode as an alternative method which suppresses all alerts but this reduces your security. I hope this answers your question.

    Unfortunately not unless game mode is enabled.

    ah i see, well maybe zone labs will fix it within the next few updates

    i'm sure many people have also come across this, since we are often using the space bar when something comes up

    oh well, thanks for your help! :-)
