    Can anyone help please?
    Since updating Zonealam I constantly get the following alert.Zonealarm has been operating at reduced security while it learns your system to help minimize pop-up alerts.You may now switch to maximum security or continue learning mode for another 21 days. I have the option of clicking on "switch to maxumum security" or "continue learning mode" Whichever I click on it continues to re-appear every few minutes. Any suggestions are very welcome.

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

    I'm having the same problem. Evidently so are others. One post offered
    the following solution:
    "To repair this problem, please follow the steps below. Please note thatthis will remove your program permission settings (so you may want to make
    note of them), but re-establishing them is a simple process.
    1.) Hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys together
    2.) Right click on the ZA icon near your clock
    3.) Choose 'Reset' from the box that comes up
    4.) Choose Yes on the Reset Settings dialog box
    5.) When prompted, choose OK to restart your system
    6.) Follow the on screen configuration prompts after reboot"

    But it did'nt work for me (well, for 21 more days it did). I reported back the same in a post but got no response. Sadly it's not just one computer but several in our office. My boss is starting to question ZA's reliability. His thinking is, if it stumbles on this point, what else is it missing.

    The problem is when asked if I want to "switch to maximum security" or "continue learning mode" no matter which I select ZA will continue to periodically ask the same question.

    The OS is XP Pro. Some computers have sp3 some still have sp2.We have been replacing mostly Nortons as the subscription ran out and were having no problems until ZA At least that seems to be when the problem started.
    Even some older versions after being upgraded started exhibiting the same problem.
    I tried the suggestion of resetting the defaults (?) but the problem returned after the learning period.
