    Default Privacy Advisor Enhancement request

    I find it odd (and annoying) that ZA has not figured out how to display the Privacy Advisor without stealing the window focus (or at least giving focus back to the window it was stolen from immediately after popping up the Privacy Advisor).
    Is this the proper place to request such an enhancement?

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro
    Software Version:6.1

    I second this request.
    I've asked for it before, and support assured me there was "no way" they could pop up the window without stealing focus.
    I can deal with the lost focus (though as a once-upon-a-time programmer, I have a hard time believing that; Outlook pops up message notification without stealing focus).
    What I hate is that the Privacy Advisor has a check box for disabling it, and whatever I happen to be typing invariably seems to disable privacy advisor, so later, when I go to a web site and it doesn't work, I don't get a notice about adjusting settings, because I've disabled it inadvertently.
    This happens most often if I have a web page open in the background with some sort of active refreshing or content in it, so it's unexpected.
    Can you at least add a second checkbox for the Privacy Settings next to "Enable Privacy Advisor" that allows me to "Lock Privacy Advisor" or disable the check-box on the advisor?
    At least then I'd just get lots of a noise when I type over it, or open a window for site management, rather than disabling it.
