I an using ZA Pro V 6.0.631.003 and at random intervals it will open my internet connection an connect but doesnt seem to go anywhere. It doesn't open my browser (Firefox, but does it with IE as well), it just connects. I know it's ZA doing it because when I shut down ZA My PC is fine. As soon as I start ZA again, at completely random intervals it will connect. This is driving me nuts! Also is there a way to stop ZA from automatically downloading updates? I prefer to do all of my updates manually and I have checked/unchecked all the appropriate boxes but it still persists in automatically updating. I don't want this to happen, can anyone help me because if the problems can't be solved I'll be using another Firewall, (reluctantly)only because I can't stop it from connecting. I'm using XP Pro. Thank you.
