If like me you have got ZoneAlarm version:8.0.065.000 Or any after V7
(Why don't you have to do this in ZA 7?) and are having problems using windows update
and are looking all over the internet for solutions (like I was), finding all sorts of help like stopping services then restarting them or registry tweaks and are still no closer to updating windows.Stop searching, there is a far easier solution.1. Open up ZA then2. Click on 'Firewall'3. Click
on 'Zones'4. Click on 'Add'5. Click on 'Host/Site'6. Type 'update.microsoft.com'7. Enter Whatever you want in 'Desctiption'8. Click on 'Lookup'9 Click on 'OK'10. Repeat Steps 4 -
adding 'windows.updare.com' and then 'windowsupdate.microsoft.com'11. Click on 'Apply'12. Close ZA - Youre all ready to use windows update .
