    Default Program Exceptions?

    Is there any way to set permissions for certain programs in ForceField? I use Snagit regularly, and ForceField blocks any screen captures by Snagit. I would like to allow Snagit to run with ForceField also running. As it is now, I have to turn off ForceField every time I want to make a Snagit capture. This is true even with an "unprotected" browser.

    Operating System:Windows Vista Ultimate
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:Other ZoneAlarm Product

    Hi!you could set the 'Block programs that secretely record your keystroke' to 'Only in allegedly secure session (https).This way, the antikeylogging will be still active where most useful (banking, shopping, etc) but will allow you to take screenshot in normal http sessions.You find the settings under the advanced option tab of ZAFF. You may need to reboot for the changes to take effect.Cheers,Fax

    You're welcome!The main problem of exception in ZAFF is that it will open a main security hole.Malware tend to use existing tools on your system to keylog your activity, allowing 'good' programs will also allow malware to use them (unless the malware is blocked by your current antivirus solution).Cheers,Fax

    Force Field; in Settings window Advanced tab in Anti-Spyware section I changed the 'Block programs that secretly record your keystrokes' dot from Always to 'Only in allegedly secure sessions(https).
    That change seemed to clear up some of the instability I have been experiencing since purchasing/loading Force Field.
