    Default Popup and ad blocking alert... how to I turn that back on?

    When I first installed ZA, I would get a warnign message popup that ZA was blocking ads and popups.. I shut that off, but don't really know if I shut it totally off or if I just
    shut the alert
    off.
    Where do I find the setttings for this?

    Thanks,
    This program is slowly making more sense... If my brain were 20 years younger, I'd be dangerous....

    Hi!don't worry... privacy settings are the ones that usually creates problems to userssince there are many option some of them not easy to find...The same applies for program control and all the right click options :8}Once you get used to it/them... its very easy....And don't try to be too resctrictive with privacy control otherwise you may get users lost because they can't access a specific web page.Cheers,Fax

    Ok... I've turned
    changed this
    setting, but I'm still not gettting the alerts. Do I need to turn the ad blocker
    and
    cookie sliders to medium?

    Hi!Not sure I can follow....if your main privacy control is OFF (cookies, ad-blocking and mobile control) or you are visiting websites that do not use any cookie, adblocking and mobile control the Privacy Advisor will not appear...Cheers,Fax

    Ok... I got it figured out now.
    Once when one of the privacy advisor alerts
    popped up, I had checked "turn off privacy advisor" and then didn't get any more alerts. Of course it turned everything off, not just the alerts.
    So when I went to Privacy/Custom/Cookies and checked the box labeled "show privacy advisor," nothing happened.
    So then
    I ran the sliders back up for the ad and cookie blocking, that
    reset all the custom settings, but now the alerts show back up. Now to go back in a reset the custom settings...
    Thanks for the help!
