I periodically get a security alert telling me the firewall has blocked Internet access. What is odd about them is that the More Info takes me to a page telling me that "This might have occurred because a program on your computer tried connect to the Internet before ZoneAlarm Pro was fully started." ZA has been running for a long time....
In the "What should I do" box, it says: By default, ZoneAlarm Pro is configured to load when you start your computer. For best security, we recommend that you retain this setting. If you continue to receive this alerts of this kind, check to see what other programs are loading at startup.
These references to "startup" are what concern me, since the computer has been up for quite a while....
Here are links to the SmartDefense Advisor pages (don't know if they'll work for anyone else):
I assume this is a bug, but don't know if it could also be due to bad configuration. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks!
(Note that the version is actually 6.1; this isn't an option on the pick list.)
