    Default How to kill this annoying ZoneAlarm "Service Message" at boot-up?

    Hello everyone. This is driving me freakin nuts. My ZoneAlarm Pro subscription expired a couple of weeks ago and ever since, I get the following annoying-as-**bleep** pop-up every time I boot up:

    "Important Service Expiration Notice...Your subscription has expired." blah blah blah

    Yeah, I know it has expired and I have no intention of renewing it at the moment...I may later, but not now. I do however, have every intention to keep using my **paid for** version of ZoneAlarm Pro (just without the added "benefits" of the annual subscription fee).

    So how then, does one shut this off? What is the Reg hack to do this, because it's obvious that Zone Labs went out of their way to NOT let you do this easily. Yes, I've tried: Overview > Preferences > "Check for product updates manually" but this has no effect on this lousy pop-up, which I deem quite abusive on the part of the folks from Z.L.

    Version: Zone Alarm Pro 5.5.094.000
    OS: Windows 98 and Windows 2000 Pro

    Thanks to anyone that can help me out here.

    Operating System:Windows 98-SE (Second Edition)
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro
    Software Version:5.x

    It sounds kind of strange and I haven't tried this myself since I have a current subscription that I keep updated but believe I recently read in a post here that you can stop that ZA subscription notice by going into ZAP under Overview > Preferences tabs and by simply setting a password for ZAP then the pop up notices will stop. It might also be a good idea to write down or keep that password that you create available just in case you need it in the future to use with ZAP.

    Thanks for the post, SoCal dude. Yeah, a fine fellow over in the "General" section of the forum posted the same workaround a few days ago. I tried it and yep, the annoying pop-up went away.

    Cool ! It's good to know that this solution works. I don't like those ZA service message pop-ups either.

    I AM
    running the latest version of Zonealarm Security Suite (6.1.744.001) and am also getting those terrifically annoying messages.
    I want to continue running the firewall but with BitDefender's antivirus instead.
    I missed the thread where you mentioned how to stop these messages.
    Can you please repeat the instructions or direct me to them?
    Thanks.
