    Default Productivity hijacked with ZA popup

    After the new install, CIDAEMON.EXE is constantly being blocked. I have no issue with this (it shouldn't be running anyway).

    My issue is I can't seem to get rid of the ZA popup that tells me it is blocked. When the ZA "Program Control" popup comes up, it interupts whatever I am doing (i.e. if I am typing something into a web page, it hijacks those inputs until it disappears).

    Very annoying.

    So, I need to know either:

    1. How to prevent it from notifying me everytime CIDAEMON.EXE is blocked
    2. how to prevent that ZA notification popup from showing up

    I'd prefer, #1, of course

    ZA version 7.0.337.000

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:7.0

    Hi!"...cidaemon.exe is an indexing service which catalogues files on your computer to enable for faster file searches. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.."

    Can you identify it in program control --> programs --> and allow access or give it trusted/super trusted permissions?

    I don't have that process in my list, so and I don't know the exact name...

    That's the odd thing about it, it does not show up in the "programs" or "components" tab or else I would just shut it off (that common quote you showed is not 100% accurate as searching for local files still works, just not as fast).

    Anyone else running across these popups? This is really annoying and I'd like to figure out how to make it stop.
