In the Programs section of Program Control, I am finding that my choices to Allow, Block, or Ask in either or both of the Access and Server side are being reset. I set most of the Server side for both Internet and Trusted to "Block", and for the Access side I set most to "Ask". I am finding that my settings aren't being saved and that programs initially denied access are being granted it anyway. Is this a glitch in ZA or should I suspect malware?
I am finding it happening on Windows XP machines running ZA 7.0.337.000 and a Windows XP and Windows 7 machines running v. 9.2.102.000. The worst case was found this morning on the XP running 7 in which all of the Server permissions were set to ask, and several of the programs were set to allow. Additionally, all but one of my entries in the Firewall section were removed---only the ethernet controller entry remained.
Is it normal for programs to change my preferences in the Program Controls, or is something malicious afoot? Thanks for any assistance.
