    Default ZASS 8.0.298.000 Preferences-product updates

    I routinely
    turn off
    software updates on all
    programs, including ZASS. I recently upgraded my ZASS on two computers
    to version 8.0.298.000 and under Overview / Preferences I
    set Product Updates to "Manual" with settings to "Alert me with a pop-up
    before contacting ZoneAlarm." Occasionally, I will get a pop-up requesting permission for
    a ZoneAlarm program update check. I have
    worked through
    the CTRL/Shift-
    Reset option, the /clean uninstall and reinstall
    option but continue to get the program update request pop-up even though I configured ZASS for a manual check. This is occurring on two different computers, one with a Windows XP SP3 installation and the other with a Vista Home Premium SP1 installation. It's a minor issue with ZASS 8.0.298.000 but does anyone have any suggestions?

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

    PapaJoePC,

    My solution to this was to untick the Alert me with a pop-up before contacting ZoneAlarm. Fixed it for me.

    Findley,
    I prefer a manual update check and simply unticking the Alert me with a pop-up before contacting ZoneAlarm apparently will
    allow an automatic update check when the Preference is set to Manual Update.
    This appears to be a bug and I don't like bugs. If I get tired of seeing the popup, I'll use your suggestion.

    PapaJoePC,

    I do the same thing, I do not update automatically I do the updating manually on my schedule.
    Here are my settings for this:

    Overview - Preferences - Check for Updates section - set to Manually

    Overview - Preferences - Contact with Zone Alarm Whenever I request info from Zone Alarm - I have unchecked the box "Alert me with a pop-up before contacting ZoneAlarm"

    Findley,
    I think that we may have two different interpretations of what removing the tick mark
    from "Alert me with a popup before contacting ZoneAlarm" does. My interpretation says that under current observations
    if I have ZASS set for a Manual update check with no tick in the "Alert me box," then an automatic update check
    is going to
    occur, but without the popup.
    The previous ZASS version (8.0.059.000) did not display the Alert popup when the program update was set to Manual.
