    Default Ports

    Hi everyone!
    I have been gone awhile and haven't been using ZoneAlarm Pro. One of the pet ppeeves that I had was that as a gamer, I had to shut down ZoneAlarm Pro to load the game --even after configuring the ports within ZoneAlarm. Is this still an issue? Also at issue for me was ad-aware. I was still swamped with ad-aware worms. Is this still and issue with ZoneAlarm?
    Another problem that I encountered was hiddden
    files left in my registry. Has ZoneAlarm added a registry cleaner that even a novice can use? Thank you in advance.
    Sincerely,
    Jhallard

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    Lavasoft Ad-Aware is a legitimate company. I doubt you get worms from them. Just my opinion.
    There used to be adaware scumware around. Not the same thing.

    Games: I think ZA Pro (but it might be suite) has a game mode. Does yours?

    ZA does not have registry cleaner. Why should it, really? ZA protects against changes but a cleaner is not one of its jobs.
    Use CCleaner.
    http://www.ccleaner.com/
    It's free and simple to use. You may want to disallow the installation of a yahoo toolbar.
    Before you clean the registry make sure to back it up first, and/or let CCleaner backup the items you will be removing.

    If you have hidden files (?) in the registry, run some scans for other malware such as rootkits. I don't know how files can get into the registry I never heard of that.
