To make a frustrating story short, I can't manually add programs to manage access rights.
I clicked the add button, found the program, and double-clicked the .exe file.
The "Big Goose Egg" for results.
I closed the ZA control panel and rebooted and tried again.
No change--No manual addition; the designated program just doesn't show up on the list.
I changed my settings to be alerted when a program not given rights on the Control list attempted to access the internet, something which is required to receive updates to said program.
(The program, itself, registers as attempting to contact the update server, the owners of which state everything's fine on their end--no disruption of file update availability).
I'm more of a "computer enthusiast" but certainly "not a geek" and could use some help.
(OS = Windows XP Home/ZA version 7.0.408.0; pro?)
