    Default Zone Alarm doesn't catch itself? Bug?

    I have the latest version of the zone alarm free firewall. In the program control access list there is something called "check point updating client" and
    i set this to "ASK" so whenever it accesses the internet it has to ask me. I set the updating of zone alarm to "manual". I have the highest zone alarm security settings.
    However, when i click on "check for update", zone alarm checks for an update using the internet and it doesn't even ask me if i want to allow it to have internet access, even though in the program control list i set the
    "check point updating client" to MANUAL.
    Is this a bug with the latest version of the free Zone alarm firewall?
    Can someone contact the Zone alarm firewall team about this?

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

Have you tried to reset the ZA settings?1.) Hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys together
    2.) Right click on the ZA icon near your clock
    3.) Choose 'Reset' from the box that comes up
    4.) Choose Yes on the Reset Settings dialog box
    5.) When prompted, choose OK to restart your system
    6.) Follow the on screen configuration prompts after rebootIn latest retail version of ZA rules for update and ZA client are not listed in the program control. In other words, you can set update to manual or turn OFF any part of ZA but you cannot set ZA to block itself. Don't know the free version, never used it.

    Is it possible to block zone alarm from connecting to the internet by putting something into the HOSTS file? If so, how do i do this? I have windows XP.
