This evening, ZA suddenly began throwing up alerts by the handful for programs that have long been okayed -- and most of the alerts do NOT have teh small box in the lower left-hand corner that I can check to indicate "take this action every time for this app," or words to that effect. For example, when I launch Firefox, ZA will pop up an alert three or four times before opening the browser. I haven't changed any settings.
One such alert is, "Internet Explorer and components are trying to access the Internet... One or more components used by his program are changed or are new... Smart Defense Advisor is not available for this alert type."
I've made several changes recently, including some registry cleaning and the addition of Plaxo software for merging address books. My question is, how can I get ZA to stop popping up so many alerts? Firefox, e.g., has a Trust Level of three bars with everything in the right-hand columns given a green check - but I'm still getting alerts - ?
