Thread: Where did the "stop internet traffic" function go?

    Default Where did the "stop internet traffic" function go?

    I cannot find the "stop all internet traffic" button on the redesigned Security Suite Control Center. There used to be a red stop sign that would halt all traffic... in and out, with one click.

    Where's it hiding now?

    Thanks!

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Ahhhh, right-click the "Z" down on the taskbar! Took me a moment, even with the above info. Actually, I guess that's better than the former version, as you don't first have to
    maximize the ZoneAlarm window to access the internet lock...

    I really miss the "stop sign" button.
    I used to Maximize Zone Alarm and click the stop sign to lock the Internet. This not only gave me visible confirmation that I was locked out, it also reminded me that I WAS locked out.
    This was handy, as I share the computer, and when other users sat down to use it, there was a visible confirmation that they would have to unlock before they could access the Internet.
    I find now, that when the task bar menu is used, I inevitably forget that the Internet is locked out. Also, there have been times when I THOUGHT I was locked out, but found I really wasn't.
    The task bar menu has always been present, even in the previous versions, but users had the choice of which method they wanted to use, stop button, or task menu.
    As for me, I'd sure like to see this button reinstated on future versions...

    Thanks for the reply GeorgeV, but I know where the function is, I was just stating that I liked the option of having the stop button on the interface as before. I'd like to see that stop button restored on future releases!

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I'm Sorry, but we are all just Users here in this Forum and have no control over the design of the Product..1.) You can contact ZA Tech Support free of charge and express your suggestion.. But I have not heard any complaints about the New Design by other users.There are Over 60 Million Users of ZoneAlarm world Wide..This User Forum exist to help the Few Users who encounter a problem and need to be guided in the right direction by Other more Experienced Users..
    ZoneAlarm Tech Support and Customer Service do notMonitor this Forum..There are two Seperate Web-links for those two services..Customer Service www.zonealarm.com/csform or www.zonealarm.com/support/ click on Live Chat IconZA Tech Support (Requires Valid ZA License Key) www.zonealarm.com/tsform
    2.) if the Old Design is more important to you, you could Downgrade back yo ZASS 7The simplest procedure is to :1.Download the Latestinstallerpreferably with IE Browwserand no Download Manager/accelerator like Get-Right, Livewire) ZAFree http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/fre...seHistory.htmlZAP http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...seHistory.html ZAAV http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...seHistory.htmlZAAS http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...seHistory.htmlZASS http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...seHistory.html2. On your current ZA, UNcheck "Load ZA... at startup" (under Overview --&gt; Preferences tab)3. Reboot the Computer. So that vsmon.exe/TrueVector will be removed from Memory4.) Now use the new ZoneAlarm Removal Tool: Click here &gt; http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...cpes_clean.exeSave to desktop, right click and "run as administrator"This tool will remove all ZoneAlarm products from your system.

    Please just download and run the tool, following the instructions. (you can un-install without net connections)
    5.) Install the new update (clean or upgrade) and Accept the default Setting, Auto-Learn Mode and Choose Trusted Zone, not Internet Zone..Please note that ZASS does not play nice with many overlapping security tools (even if disabled). To troubleshoot ZASS issues remove them and install back once you see that ZA works as it should. For example,Norton/Symantec, McAfee,Spyspweeper, Spyware Doctor, trojan hunter, adware, SpyBotS&amp;D, PC tools Threatfire, otherantivirus, antispyware, Registry Guard or locking tools, etc...
