Hi, I have Windows Vista Home Premium SP1, and Free Zonealarm 7.1.254.000 with the latest updates on both products.
Since earlier this month (perhaps the October 2008 Windows updates?) my Windows Security Center no longer recognizes Zonealarm as a firewall. I have had Zonealarm a long time and never had any problems up to now.
I have tried turning ZA on and off, using the Firewall slider bar in ZA, and even rebuilding my WMI folder according to other posts in these forums. But none of these work.
I have currently set my ZA to NOT switch off Windows Firewall, and changed the Windows Security Center to "monitor my own firewall" and "do not notify me and don't display icon" however this is hardly a satisfactory solution.
I haven't seen anyone else posting with this problem - am I alone? Will Zonealarm please contact Microsoft and tell them this is happening, or else upgrade their free ZA to solve the problem?
Operating System:Windows Vista Home Premium
Software Version:7.1 (Vista)
