    Default Programs in Program Control change access without permission???

    Why do some
    programs in Program Control change access without permission by themselves?For example a program that is set to a restricted or ask trust level changes to a super trust level and changes from blocked or ask setting in the trusted zone, the internet and server access to allow.Zone Alarm was uninstalled, with files deleted
    and then re-installed as per Oldsod's instructions to be sure that the problem wasn't corrupt files, but the problem still occurs.Is there any way to
    fix this problem?Thank you.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:6.5

    It could be your Smart Defense Advisor at work. From the ZASS help files:<hr> If you set SmartDefense Advisor to Auto and there is no advice available for a program, Zone Labs security software displays a Program alert prompting you to allow or deny access to the program. If you select Remember this setting when responding to such a Program alert, Zone Labs security software keeps your setting unless SmartDefense Advisor comes out with a different setting, or until you change the setting manually in the Programs tab.
    ...
    Auto * SmartDefense Advisor determines the program policy, unless a recommendation is not available. (Note that, if SmartDefense Advisor is turned on, and you select Remember this setting when responding to a Program alert, the SmartDefense Advisor column will still say Auto, since the permissions will still change to conform to any SmartDefense Advisor recommendations that come out later.)<hr>Turn off the Auto Smart Defense Advisor and see if that makes a difference.
