I have ZoneAlarm 8.0.065 installed on a new Dell Vostro 1310 running a clean install of XP Pro SP3 with AVG8. It behaves normally on the two main user accounts, but when logging onto the Guest account, ZA seems to take longer than usual to initialise, then opens a blank ZA window and launches Firefox to display a Check Point welcome page. This is what would be expected on the first use but is a nuisance when it happens every time! Is there any way I can stop ZA from going through this first use routine on the Guest account?
I have checked the other PCs I use, all of which are set up similarly, and logging onto the Guest account causes no unexpected windows to open, although again ZA seems to take longer to initialise. Double clicking the ZA tray icon opens a ZA window that is blank but this is fine for a guest user. I guess the key difference with these machines is that ZA was installed when they were running XP SP2, although they subsequently all upgraded to SP3.
I have tried a clean uninstall of ZA on the Vostro, followed by a re-installation - no change. I also tried uninstalling, installing v7.0.483 (no web page!) then upgrading to v8 - the problem returns! Perhaps I should stick with V7 for now. Any other suggestions?
