Thread: ZA system tray icon not always indicating traffic activity...

  1. #1

    Exclamation ZA system tray icon not always indicating traffic activity...

    Can the bug below be fixed in the upcoming version 10? I'm a long time ZA user. It used to work fine in version 8 and prior, but was broken in version 9.

    BUG...
    Tray icon is not indicating traffic when file is downloading. It should be showing the green light meter but it's only showing the Z icon [as if there is no traffic]. I tested by downloading a file with IE. Can this be fixed?

    Sorry, that is by design and not a Bug..

    The ZA indicator should NOT be something you ever depend on to show ALL internet activity. It was never designed to be relied on for that 100%

    It will not show every bit of internet activity that happens on the PC.

    Sorry this is by design and how the product is limited to interfacing with the OS.

    but ive been using every version of ZA since the early 2000's and it has always shown all internet activity in the lights. it was broken in version 9 only. so i consider the behavior in version 9 broken. plus it doesn't make sense to show some but not all internet activity in the lights. what good is partial and inconsistent indication of internet activity?

    Its not going to be fixed in fact its going to be removed from up comming ZA version 10

    So this will be a non issue going forward.

    ZoneAlarm is not in the buiness of showing internet activity.
