    for windows update and I could not connect, themessage I got said that I needed to login as an administrator.. But I am logged assuch??? I exited FF and the update ran fine..As I said I just installed FF so it may be just a setting set wrong

    Hi!ZAFF does not work with windows update... you need to open a non protected IE window (right click the ZAFF icon near the clock) and run windows update.In betas I have tested ZAFF was automatically detecting you were trying to reach windows update and open a new unprotected IE window automatically.May be this has been removed from the final version?Hope this helps.Cheers,Fax

    Thanks Fax..
    I did not know that was an issue and
    it seems the final version may have removed that option.I'll check more the next time I use the XP.. I'm not really sure why I got it, Guess becauseit was free and I had to give it a try in hopes of maybe installing ZA/FF on my Vista.
    Guess it would be the same for the Vista?? If so I guess I'll stick with what I have installed now,that is as long as it keeps running as smooth, trouble free
    and fast as it has been..
    Thanks again

    Hi!It is just that ZAFF blocks Explorer ActiveX for WU.There is no VISTA update via IE, so its not an issue in VISTA.Nor its an issue in XP if you use automatic updates.To be clear ZAFF does not block windows updates,only the WU website will not load correctly if your have ZAFF active.Cheers,Fax
