Being paranoid, I have ZoneAlarm (ZASS 8.0.298) configured to ask my permission before allowing programs to access the trusted zone, access the internet or do something "dangerous". I get lots of alerts even though I allow the obvious to happen automatically. It's a nuisance, but part of the price I am willing to pay for security.

The problem is that I am typing away in my editor and one of these alerts pops us and steals my type-ahead. Often, the type-ahead contains a letter that "satisfies" the alert and thinks I have approved (or disapproved) and the alert vanishes from the screen before I can even see what it is or how I inadvertently responded.

Is there a way to disable keystrokes in alerts so that I have to use the mouse to point and click in order to reply to an alert?

I apologize if this has already been asked and answered, but I can't find any threads about this.
