Today I tried to change setting for my firewall
and received a message screen asking for my "personal password".

It cames up when ever I went to open things such as "Overview - Product Information - Renew License,
also at the change license number and numerous other places.
For the past 8-10 days I have repeatedly received a screen that asks if I want to go to maximum security or remain in the learning phase.
I have
chosen Max.
but the message continually repeats itself.I have used ZA for over 7 years and have never created a password except for wesite access, and that doesn't work for this problem?????
I am concerned that one of the newer viruses may have been able to infiltrate ZASS and block user access, so changes can't be made, or is my paranoia showing?
