Thread: ZA free stop button

    Default ZA free stop button

    In previous versions of ZA free there was a stop button on my desktop which made it easy to stop Internet activity when I left my computer, especially with DSL.The newest version doesn't seem to have a stop button. I have to go to the system tray, right click the ZA icon, and click "engage Internet lock" to stop Internet activity.
    Did I miss something somewhere or is this how the new version is? If so it just became less user friendly and not as easy to use!Doug

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:8.0

    Hi!yes, this is the way it is currently. It allows you to engage the internet lock without the need of opening ZA at all.Cheers,Fax

    Thanks, but that's too bad. It was easier before to simply click the stop button. Oh well it's like this with everything, make it easier for the programmer not the users.

    And PS. for Admin; By not providing direct support for your front line product, ZA free, how could I possibly believe that ZA would provide necessary support if I were to purchase something more comprehensive and user intensive? The worth of a product is in it's waranty and service. Absent those it's just another run of the mill product.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>You can feedback directly to ZA product management here:http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/b...ssage.id=55624Personanlly I thinkit makes little sense and its more complicated since you are forced to open ZA before been able to block internet.With the current version is just one (1) click Cheers,Fax

    Not to argue but the previous versions had a banner on the desktop with a red &quot;STOP&quot; button, one click. (Although the last banner was bigger than it needed to be). This version requires 2 clicks, right click the icon in the system tray then click, &quot;Stop all Internet activity&quot;. It's not a big deal I suppose it's just not as handy.
