    Default Password Setup

    I am using ZoneAlarm Security Suite V. 7.0.483.000 and I've setup a password to prevent unauthorized changes.

    However, when I tried to change settings of all the options, it doesn't request for a password. Usually, that shouldn't be the case.

    I wanted to enable "Parental Control" and it doesn't ask for a password. Why?
