    Default Program Alert Advisor Mistake

    Yesterday I got installed a Java update (Version 6 Update 19) and everything was working fine but because it was a new program I started getting Program alert pop ups asking me to allow or deny Java access to the Internet. Well I went and checked the box to always deny the program access thinking that there would not be a problem as the box was popping up quite a bit and now I'm having major problems online as some Java functions that are being prevented from working are causing all kind of problems online on websites and also after a few minutes pages and the browser stop responding completely. All functions on the Mozilla toolbar stop functioning too. You click and nothing happens then the browser stops working too. I close it and it will not open again at times until I restart the computer.

    My question.. Is there anyway to reverse what I did when I clicked that little box and prevented the program fro working on my PC? All my problems started the right after I made that change.

    I'm sorry if I did not explain this clearly.

    I just check the ZA Log in Programs and found these two entries

    Java Quick Starter binary was blocked from connecting to the local zone

    Type Program access

    and

    Firefox.exe. tried to connect to the internet (), but was denied access by the internet lock

    Lock Enabled

    I am using Windows XP Pro and Mozilla Firefox browser.

    easy mistake to fix..

    1.) Click on the ZA Tray Icon to run the ZA control Menu..

    2.) on the left side Click on "Program control", then Click on "Programs"
    in order to display the Program List..

    look down the list for the JAVA listings.. There may be 5 or 6 JAVA listings..

    Change the first three RED "X" from the left, to GREEN "checkmarks"
    the other marks to the Right should be Blue "?"
    Here is a Screen Shot of my Settings..

    OK Sir! Thank You for the reply!

    I did as you said but in my case I had 29 Java programs in my list. Don't know why so many. I went and changed the rest of them just the way that you said.

    I took off two sets of red X's and tried it again. The PC seemed to be working much better but not yet perfect. I still had items that did not work. what I found next was that in my Firefox "Add On" I had two Java related add on's listed.

    Java console 6.0.19 and Java Quick Starter 1.0

    I don't know how they got there but I disabled them and then i had to restart the PC because that was as far as I could go as the browser stopped responding.

    After restart things were even better and so far everything seems normal but I had better use it for a while to see what happens.

    Will write a final post if I get lucky!

    Thank You!!

    Yes I have used this program very recently and I did remove quite a few of the older and vulnerable Java's that were listed. I suspect that many of these on the list are no longer in my PC but I will get it another run just to be sure!!

    Thank You Sir for your help!
