Thread: Too many Programs listed!

    Default Too many Programs listed!

    It seems That there is WAY TOO MANY programs listed in my Program Control>Programs window. All of the Windows Service Pack Setup programs are there, even my third party calculator program. These programs all have four blue question marks meaning that I will be asked if they should be granted permission.

    I would like to clean up this window to make it easier to see the programs that really are important. I don t expect most of them to ever need permission status, but I could be wrong about this.

    Is it OK to remove such programs from this list of programs? If they ever do need permission will the automatic function, which does work, kick in and add them back to the list?

    Thanks,

    Ken

    hogburgs, Yes you can delete them, the ones you need will come back and the ones that need permission will ask again.

    Ah, hogburgs must have been a ZA 4 and 5 user - which did not list the Windows files in it's OS firewall.From ZA 6 and onward, ZA lists everything.

    Do they have to reapear again? I don't like this list this big. I would like it to only contain programs with rules (allowed to connect to the internet or not, allowed to act as server or not). All the oter programs are not needed in this list, I think.
    I am studying computer science and every little software piece I wrote appears in this list. Even though it never asked for connection or anything!
    I hope that there will be an option for configuring the list the way I want it... it would be really great!
