    Default Change default browser access by Zone Alarm

    I installed ZA and it works fine for me. I use vista with no issues. However, my default browser is Fire Fox and ZA wants to use IE as it's default browser. How do I change this. Of course I have checked the browser settings and FF is set as the default and IE is not. Thanks for any help..

    Operating System:Windows Vista Home Basic
    Software Version:7.1 (Vista)
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    IE is the default browser for the ZA. It does not matter if the FF is set as default, the ZA will still use the IE. The ZA web site interactions work better with IE (I think the Zone Labs site is built for IE). Every windows security software application always has the IE 5 and up as one of the requirements for installing their software.

    Has anyone worked out a way to change the default browser used by zonealarm - it's all very well and good that the site may be optimised for IE, but what about those of us who use a different browser and don't want IE going outside the firewall (which is one of the reasons that I use zonealarm)? Surely zonealarm is a better product than that?

    See http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/b...ssage.id=78680

    Just do not forget that the antivirus and antsipyware running along side the ZA all have specified IE 5 or better as an installation requirement. No doubt the IE is their preffered browser as well.

    Really want to avoid the ZA using the iE in any situation?
    Then check the ZA/ZL site with your preferred browser manually by yourself not automatically through the ZA or for any contact with any of the ZA/ZL sites of any kind.
    It is really s not that hard if you want to avoid the IE.
