Thread: ZoneAlarm Pro 6-7: Anti-spyware updates steals windows focus!

  1. #1

    Default ZoneAlarm Pro 6-7: Anti-spyware updates steals windows focus!

    ZoneAlarm Pro 6-7:
    Whenever anti-spyware updates, it steals windows focus!
    So when I run a fullscreen program such as a game, it causes my program to minimize to desktop--which is very annoying.
    The stealing of window
    focus and anti-spyware update times are the same.
    Can this be fixed anytime soon?

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro
    Software Version:7.0

    Yes it's annoying - if you desire use manual updates instead of automatic ones if it really annoys you.

    Yes, all of us... but may be many users are not gamers or not bothered by it and will not report it to ZA labs...Thats why if not reported it will never get fixed and.... more reports... more likely that this is fixed.I have personally reported it when ZASS was in public beta... Cheers,Fax

    so this has been reported for awhile now and ZA just hasn't gotten around to fixing it?
    BTW: If I use Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6, should I STILL enable anti-spyware in ZA?
    Or should I turn it off in ZA?
    Thanks.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>If it is reportedonly by few it is unlikely that it will be fixed (priority settings)Well, ZA AS works only "on demand" and if you use KAV you can disable automatic spyware updates (under advanced options in the mian ZA spyware tab) and manual update whenever you want torun a ZA AS scan... this will solve your problem of focus...Fax

    Personally, I'd like see it the way Ewido/AVG AS does it. It's not in your face like the ZA one is.
