    Default How Do I know what to Allow as Access etc

    Hello, I have used Zone Alarm for some time, after the recent problem with the XP Update and fixing that, I have many programs that have trusted access and I did not go and put them as that. Also with internet access. I find it almost impossible to know what I should have or not have?
    Any help please.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Thank you, Yes, I see what that says, but I dont know what things like server trusted/internet or access trusted/internet mean.
    the column marked "send mail", I assume that this would mean that for outlook express this would have that as allowed, however
    Why do most of the programmes etc have a green tick on Send Mail column, I did not put them there.
    When I go through and put ? ask, I then get warning messages with information like this one

    <a target="_blank"></a>IEEE-1284.4-1999 Network Driver (Windows) is trying to connect to the Internet or your local network

    I dont know what IEEE-128.4 etc means, do I allow it or not and what to then put with red X or Green tick or ?ask

    Most of this would be automatically
    set correctly for you if you allowed ZoneAlarm to run with Program Control and SmartDefense Advisor both set to Auto (the default)
    when first installing ZoneAlarm.

    OK, well now that it is already installed, is there a way to do this, I have gone looking but cannot find.

    Yes, you can set it manually. Go to Program Control &gt; Main tab. With your mouse, move the Program Control slider to Auto. The SmartDefense Advisor should already be set to Auto; if not, move it to Auto.

    Since many of your program settings have already been set, perhaps incorrectly,
    by you, the above will not change what has already been set. Therefore, I would recommend you do a database reset. This will put ZoneAlarm back into the state it was in after the install. It should also reset both sliders to Auto (see above). Do the following for the database reset:
    1) Ctrl + Shift right-click on ZoneAlarm System Tray icon

    2) Click Reset in popup box

    3) Click Yes in Reset Settings dialog box

    4) Click OK when prompted to reboot

    5) Follow onscreen prompts after reboot

    Now ZoneAlarm will automatically configure many settings for you. Some programs that it doesn't know about
    will cause it to prompt you with a popup. If you know the program, you can allow it (or more likely, allow it permanently). Remember, you can always go back into the Programs list and modify existing entries. After several weeks, the Program Control slider should automatically move from Auto to Max.
