Thread: mIRC usage blocked

    Default mIRC usage blocked

    I updated to the newest zone alarm today and it seems that I am not allowed to access mIRC whatsoever. I am allowed to use the IRC on my firefox. But using the program mIRC since the update is impossible. It automatically closes it just as soon as i start it up. Is there a way in order to allow mIRC to boot because it worked before the restart to finish zonealarm.

    Version of ZAfree? 6?7?8? 9? 9.1.? 9.2.057.000?
    There is no option in ZAfree to block mIRC unless you have corrupted settings.

    9.2.57.0 is my current version. It just automatically closes mIRC on me apposed from giving me a choice. All my security's are set to medium but even if i set them low enough it wont allow it. I even have to shut down zone alarm completely instead of telling the firewall and anti pshing to turn off in the client window. Also after it moved the old settings with the new, it had its program to judge which should be allowed, and it blocked it, but of course i set it to manual and unblocked. And in my firewall it says it is set to listen but blocks anyway, everything is blocked on it and it just instantly turns it off.

    Not sure I follow, I would recommend resetting ZA and test it again by NOT touching any default ZA settings. This way:

    1.) Hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys together
    2.) Right click on the ZA icon near your clock
    3.) Choose 'Reset' from the box that comes up
    4.) Choose Yes on the Reset Settings dialog box
    5.) When prompted, choose OK to restart your system
    6.) Follow the on screen configuration prompts after reboot

    I am having the same problem. I have to turn Zonealarm off in order to get on mIRC. I have allowed all access and server permissions and still doesn't work. I go on and it instantly shuts IRC off.

    I tried what you suggested and it still doesn't work. As soon as you connect mIRC clicks off and disappears. Anyone know a solution to this?

    I finally got it to work by doing everything manually instead of automatically after the reset. Thanks.

    Just tested mIRC v6.35 with Free ZoneAlarm 9.2.057 on a Vista 32bit system and after allowing two program control pop ups mIRC connected just fine to a server.

    No problems at all with ZA shutting down mIRC at all.

    I am also having a problem using mirc after updating. I get a popup asking me if I want to allow it or not. I tell it to allow mirc and then it allows mirc to load.

    However, if I reboot .. the entire process has to be repeated. It seems it does not remember mirc is allowed. I checked Programs and mirc has green checks all across.

    Any advice?
