    Angry PopUp ad everytime Windows starts, ~Snip~

    Every time I start Windows Zone Alarms invokes a very annoying Pop-Up advert, asking me to upgrade from the basic firewall product.

    Default Re: PopUp ad everytime Windows starts, please remove this bug

    You did not provide information about your Version of Zone Alarm or Version of Windows..

    Sorry, but Popups and Advertisements for the Paid product is the price you pay for

    choosing the Free Basic Version..

    Unless the AD is clicked windows reports Zone Alarm firewall is switched off and windows displays a red icon security warning. ~~snio~~

    Basic Zone Alarm version 9.1.007.002

    Thank you for the Feedback that you are Using the Free Basic version of Zone Alarm..

    1.) The only thing that can be done to stop the Popup Offers to upgrade to one of the paid Products, is to UN-INSTALL ZA free and try some other Free firewall?

    2.) "Zone Alarm firewall is switched off and windows displays a red icon security warning"

    This Additional information may indicate that,
    a.) eirther you have a Corrupted or Bad install of Zone Alarm Free version, or
    b.) You have other Security software or Windows Firewall Conflicting with or Blocking the ZA Firewall..

    Thanks, but I don't understand how the Ad causes windows to consider Zone Alarm to be off, but when I click on the Ad, ZoneAlarm magically indicates it is working and the red security warning icon disappears, the Ad seems to be embedded into the start up of Zone Alarm "UI is initializing process". I don't think my download is corrupted.

    I consider these forum editing snips actually mis-represent the concerns I am raising. IE: The Ad causes windows to invoke a security warning icon.

    Sorry that is Exactly what the error Message means..

    You must Un-install Zone alarm Free Basic versions, Turn off or Uninstall all other 3rd party Security Programs so that they will not Block or Conflict with the RE-Install of ZA Free 9.1.007.002..

    Only after ZA is Re-Installed with Default settings and Running Smoothly with no Errors, then you can Turn on or Re-Install other AV/AS Software..
