    Smile How do I stop the Nag screen?

    I'm currently running Zone Alarm Free Firewall version 8.0.065.000 on my Vista laptop.
    What has started happening, is as soon as I start the pc up and zone alarm icon has appeared in the task bar, a nagging pop up appears titled Zone Alarm security options, giving me the option to buy the security suite.
    I
    have two options there, one is to click 'Tell me more' and the other is 'No thanks' - I have clicked both, but this still pops up EVERY time the computer is booted up.

    I have gone into preferences and clicked to get updates manual instead of automatic, which I believe has worked for some people, but I still get it popping up.
    I am told by others that it is because it is free, but I have had Zone Alarm free firewall for years and have never got this before.
    Is there any solution, and does anyone else get it?

    Operating System:Windows Vista Home Premium
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    For some reason, nothings happened.

    I did notice that before now, this pop up appears on my Vista laptop, but when I turned my PC which has XP on, it popped up on there also - and this Zone Alarm version has been installed for quite a while.
    Is it something that Zone Alarm are doing from now on do you think, or maybe (hopefully) it is only for a limited time only.

    Hello;
    We are all Users here in this Forum.. None of us work for Checkpoint..

    Here is my two cents worth..

    I'm sorry for the inconvenience to you by the Pop-up Advertisement..

    However,

    You did choose to use the FREE product, and It cost a lot of Money in Man hours and production cost for Software Companies to produce and Upgrade Security software..

    So to offset the Cost, and afford to provide a Free or Trial Version of their Products,
    Most Software Developers, use one of Several methods to off-set that cost..

    1.) Provide a Trial version with a Built-in Drop Dead Shut off time limit, that forces you to Buy the product,, or

    2.) Produce a Trial Version that Reverts to a Limited Function Free version with Constant Pop-up Advertisements to entice the Free User to Try the Paid Version..

    3.) or Do not offer any Free version at all..

    IMHO, the occasional Pop-up is a small price to pay for the Use of a FREE product that you depend on to Protect your computer..
