    Default Security Alert for Forcefield?

    I upgraded to the latest version of Zonealarm Pro, which added the Forcefield toolbar to Firefox (3.5.4).

    Now whenever I start Firefox, I have problems. On initial startup, it simply does not start at all, rather the application starts, but does not open the browser. I have to open the Windows taskbar, end the Firefox process and then start it again. At that point I get a browser window and everything is fine.

    However, EVERY time I start Firefox, whether I can get a browser window open or not, I get a ZoneAlarm Security alert. Why? It objects to ISWSVC.exe, which is the Forcefield program, which I find extremely stupid. This is a ZoneAlarm add-on, I should not have to configure ZoneAlarm to accept it's own add-on!

    But I have done this. Or rather, I have tried to do this. I went into program controls and gave the Forcefield program all the rights to the internet, to practically everything. I did the same for the compenent programs. Guess what? I *still* am getting the Security Alert for Forcefield.

    I tried disabling the Forcefield toolbar. This did not get rid of the security alerts either, or fix the first problem with getting Firefox started.

    If that's not enough, I am also getting these alerts on initial boot up of my system, which I tend to keep running at all times because it is the admin computer for our home network. However, occasionally I do have to reboot it. It has also started running very slow.

    This is a Windows XP system with Service Pack 3. Any help will be appreciated.
