    Angry ZoneAlarm Pro Program Control Settings?!!!!

    i recently installed

    ZoneAlarm version:
    vsmon version:
    Driver version:
    ZoneAlarm Browser Security: 1.5.310.0
    ZoneAlarm ForceField Spyware Scanner:
    ZoneAlarm ForceField Anti-Phishing Database:
    ZoneAlarm ForceField Spyware Sites Database: 04.155

    And i dont understand what was changed in this version from my previous version.. but this version of ZoneAlarm Pro doesnt seem to ASK me for Permission ... like the Other version use to...

    I called myself goin thru every setting menu and settin it to what i thought would be the logical settings for this thing to ask me before granting internet access.. but apparently not..

    What do i have to do .. to make this thing ask me for EVERYTHING.. I wanna be the gatekeeper.. i want this thing to ask me for everything like it use to .. it even use to ask me if i wanna allow a program to open and stuff like that... this thing just willynilly lets everything go .....

    Here is a List of whats New with ZA Pro 10:

    ZoneAlarm Pro version
    • This update improves compatibility with non-English operating systems and stand-alone versions of Hard Drive Encryption.
    ZoneAlarm Pro version
    • New user-friendly design: Easy for all levels of users, confirms protection at a glance. Runs automatically, is easy to customize and provides instant access to support and 24/7 live chat.
    • Quick install: Makes securing your computer faster and easier than ever.
    • Enhanced Cloud Security: 3rd generation cloud technologies detect 50,000 - 75,000 new applications every day and verify threats detected by behavioral scans.
    • Online Backup--free 2GB of storage space
    Here is a Quote from the Forum Moderator posted above in a Sticky Note in this Section of the Forum:

    In version 10 and above the new behavior for alerts since there is no longer a check box to remember the setting is:

    Program alerts: Both allow and deny are Remembered permanent.

    OS Firewall alerts: Allow is remembered permanent and deny is only for that session only.

    To clarify, session isn’t referring to session of ZoneAlarm, but for the lifetime of the process.

    I don't know why they won't give you a straight answer.

    To make it ask, open the ZA panel. Select the COMPUTER button. Then Select the Applications Control button that says "Settings" then you can do two things, move the slider off the "AUTO" setting to "MANUAL" which should be enough and/or you can click on the "Advanced Settings" button and select the "Advanced" menu from the left side. There are to radio buttons to set it to 'ask every time'

    Also you need to UNcheck (advance settings of program control) "Enable Microsoft Catalogue Utilization".

    Please do not hesitate to help more in the forum. Any user with some knowledge of ZA been able to help other users is more than welcome.
