Everyone knows that the autolearn feature (for Program Control) is set-on by default for 21 days after installing ZoneAlarm.
Depending on who you ask, this is possibly a vulnerability because the computer is some-how "less" secure for this brief period. However, I do notice that this autolearn feature dramatically cuts down the number and frequency of pop-up reminders prompting for you to allow access (or deny access) to various programs.
How do the experts feel?
I generally feel that the autolearn should be left on for 3 days to a week because within that time frame you'll most likely use a ton of the programs you normally do. This therefore will allow ZA to add them to the list, then you can raise it to Maximum.
Or do you recommend setting it at Maximum right away? Or possible leaving the autolearn for the duration? Please give any explanations necessary.
