    Default ZA free firewall update question

    Does the automatic update function on the free ZA firewall require the Windows Task Scheduler service, or will ZA continue to operate if this service is disabled?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    Dear smilejack:

    You don't need Task Scheduler for ZAfree to update. If you don't use Task Scheduler, disable its service in Services and save a lot of RAM. Click Start, Run, type services.msc, then click OK. In the Services window, scroll down to Task Scheduler and double click on it. If it shows Service status as Started, click the Stop button. Then click the down arrow by Startup type and click Disabled, then OK. Besides saving RAM, you've closed a big security hole in Windows.

    Hope this helps.
