Thread: That annoying update pop up

    Default That annoying update pop up

    Free ZA V8.
    On start up always displays a pop-up asking to send reg ID for updates.
    Automatic updates set to manual.

    ZA7 never did this.

    I see there are numerous threads on this.
    Patersonstreet - did you get it solved?
    Bigbad64 - anny joy?
    Yogiyo12 - you say you solved it but don't say how!

    GeorgeV - Suggesting upgrade is missing the point. Either the free version wiorks or it doesn't. If people wanted the paid-for version they'd have bought it. And experience with the free version like this is hardly likely to inspiure confidence to pay. Surely the point of this forum is to find appropriate solutions?
    However I take your point about each member starting a new thread - so here's my new (if oft-repeated) thread!

    Thank your Sky Soldiers for your Excellent Suggestions..

    I always recommend using the Latest Current version and Update of Windows OS, and Security software..

    and If a User wants more than they are getting from Their FREE Software,

    then it may be Time to Move on to the Paid version, or Try another FREE Firewall..

    Thanks for the replies.

    So no solutions/constructive suggestions?

    Just ' upgrade, pay or use another product' All ideas most people can come up with for themselves.

    And this forum is for.....?
