Thread: WoW screen intermittently drops to Windows - Game Mode fixes it, but is there something permamanent?

    Default WoW screen intermittently drops to Windows - Game Mode fixes it, but is there something permamanent?

    Playing World of Warcraft, the screen in full mode drops back to Windows Desktop - ALT-TAB and the Z for Zone alarm shows in tab box but there is no message.
    If I set it up in game Mode, this problem does not occur.
    Any suggestions for a more permanent fix other than remembering to run Game Mode?


    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    Hi!or you run game mode with games or you need to disable automatic updates (both under preferences tab and the advanced option of the antivirus/antispyware tab)Better the GAME MODE option (IMO)Cheers,Fax

    Hmmm... I'm not sure I understand you. Do I have to disable automatic updates if I want to run Game Mode?

    We have a new beta out that possibly may fix this issue where we steal focus away from other applications running.

    This new beta also has a feature where you can change the update frequency of the AV/AS updates not so that there not every hour. This should help some gaming issues also.

    The new beta 7.0.415.000 can be found here: www.zonealarm.com/beta


    If you decided to try this please let us know if it helped your situation or not.
