Thread: ZA firewall needs to be restarted every boot

    Default ZA firewall needs to be restarted every boot

    I recently updated XP and since then, whenever I boot the system, ZA comes up with a message that the Firewall is not turned on. I can manually turn it on but have to do so every time I boot. How can I have it turn on automatically every time I boot?

    Retired_bill,

    The zone alarm firewall starts automatically with every boot if you have enabled that in the Control Panel. Open Control panel, open Overview > Preferences
    Is Load Zone Alarm Security Suite at startup checked?

    I opened control panel but unless I'm missing something, there is no overview. What am I missing?

    Bill,
    You're right - you're using version 7 ZAISS and I was thinking version 8.
    I don't have version 7 in front of me right now, but open the control panel and
    its in the preferences tab.

    I am so sorry for posting this here, but I just got tired searching for a better place to do it.
    I wanted to update the free ZA version, so yesterday I bought the pro-version -- but after some installation problems (I have XP and an Acer laptop) and some readings I admit I should have done earlier, I wonder if there is any way to simply get my money back.
    Regards,
    Isabel.

    It is Sometimes very Difficult to Diagnose and fix a Computer from halfway across the Country,
    without All the Details,without the ability to sit in front of your Computer monitor and see what's going on..
    If you would Describe your Computer Setup/OS and Version of Zone Alarm that you are having a problem with
    and what difficulty you are having, and what Previous Version of ZA and Norton, McAfee or other Security programs that you have installed,
    there are several knowledgeable Volunteer Participants willing to help you try solving your problem with Zone Alarm2.) The fact that your have an ACER Computer, would have been helpful to know, as there are several DFixes to the Acer Install Files that would enable Zone Alarm to work..Please read the following Forum Link on Fixing the ACER Compatibility with ZA Fix..http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/b...ssage.id=78568http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/b...ssage.id=834613.) if you still want a Refund for your ZAPro purchase and invalidate your registration Key..You will have to Contact Customer Service..

    Hi Retired_Bill,
    Where are you looking?
    Right click on the Z icon in the system tray (lower-right corner of the screen) once you've started Zone Alarms successfully.
    Look on the menu or tabs of ZA for OVERVIEW.
    One of the subcategories of overview is PREFERENCES.
    On that tab one of the selections, General, is LOAD ZONE ALARM AT STARTUP.
    Far as I recall, ALL versions of ZA have this in the preferences section.

    Thank you very much for your input. It allowed me to correct the problem. I no longer have to worry about whether or not I'm protected by a firewall.

    Thanks very much.

    Bill
