    Default Asks for permission when a program is updated

    Is there any way to get ZA Free to accept prior permissions when a program updates? For example, Firefox updates almost weekly, or so it seems, and every time it does, I have to go through the permission process -- this is enough of a nuisance when I am physically at the computer, but it is absolutely fatal when I am using GoToMyPC and the remote machine asks for permission (which ZA will not allow to be done remotely).

    I have seen Help screens that say there is a check box to accomplish this, but there are absolutely NOWHERE to be found.

    TIA

    Sorry, I think the check box is a Feature of the Paid versions..

    also, the reason for the repeat permition process, is to protect you from Hacked or Modified program, since the Update has a changed size or structure from the prvious aproved version..

    Thanks, Guru GeorgeV. What was stumping me was that the description of this feature showed up in the Help screens for the "Free" version, so I assumed it was available in that version. Depending on cost, that alone might make upgrading worth it.
