    Default ZASS 7.0.462 Windows Security Center reports inactive firewall

    Hello,

    I installed the latest ZASS release as recommended.
    The release history reads itself quite impressive...

    First impressions: Stable so far, faster boot-time.

    But Windows Security center reports that the firewall is not active.
    I checked the "personal control" box to work-around but this is no definitive solution, of course.

    Is this one of the bugs that re-occured? (It was one in the earlier 7.x releases...)
    Possible issue, because I am using the english ZASS release on a german WinXP Pro?
    Any tweaks or fixes known?

    Regards
    Alex

    Hi,

    Welcome to the Forum!

    Thanks to FINDLEY for the following solution.

    Here's how to make the Windows Security Center see the ZA firewall

    1. Overview Tab->Preferences tab-> Uncheck Load ZA at startup

    2. Reboot the computer

    3. Turn ON windows firewall

    4. Now load ZA, Windows Security Center should see ZA firewall and Windows firewall should have been disabled by ZA (by checking under Firewall ->Advanced ->checked Disable Windows firewall

    5. Go back to #1 and check Load ZA at startup

    You don't even need to go through a reboot, all you have to do is shutdown ZA (right click on the icon in the taskbar, select Shutdown ZA) and restart it from the Start > ZA menu.

    I reported the bug to ZA during the beta but they didn't bother to fix it.
