    Default Re: ZA blocks my settings changes

    I'm getting hundreds of complaints (sampled below) in the OS firewall log, along the same lines. Is this the same problem?
    I read this as ZAP preventing CIDAEMON.EXE, & iipoint.exe from performing appropriate changes to WINSYSDIR\vsconfig.xml, etc. Is there a simple appropriate way to allow this (these), such as in program control? I noticed in WTM, that these programs are using a lot of CPU time.

    Hi ZAFZAP

    These alerts/logs are harmless - these are showing the usual window's applications attempting to open the ZoneAlarm files.
    Why the ZoneAlarm shows these as intrusions is just part of the self-protection of the ZA.

    What you can do, is right click all of these pesky files in the ZoneAlarm's Program list and open the Options, then check the second item show (Allow open process) and Apply and OK.
    Then give these files the Super or three green bars for the Trust rating.

    But I do suspect if you disable the Index service in windows most of the alerts that you have listed will disappear.

    Best regards.
