I updated Zone Alarm Security Suite on Nov. 5, responding to the prompt from Check Point. Since then I've been unable to do things like online check-in for an airline flight, or posting photos at my Blogger site. The problem seems to be that such functions require a popup, and my Zone Alarm no longer has the feature that allows me to designate trusted websites at which popups are acceptable to me. Not all pop-ups are bad, after all! Is this a faulty installation or has the program really been made less capable than the previous version?
I'm running the program on XP with SP2 installed. The PC is an HP Pavilion a430n. I never installed SP3 for the operating system because it doesn't play nice with this machine's AMD processor. My attempts to install the patch for AMD machines have failed several times.
