    Default ZA Pro 10.0.250 Application Settings do not stick

    I am having some problems after setting application settings via programs and components. On the next boot some hang and on checking the settings they were not saved.

    In particular my printer drivers/demons to a parallel port on the first print attempt hangs in the queue. If I turn off ZA the restart the document in the print queue it prints. I I restart ZA on the next print it works. I set all components regarding printer spooling, etc., to allow and all related services to custom allow and super trust, tried both authenticate and don't authenticate components, allow sendmail, etc., although that should not be necessary.

    This is Win XP SP3.

    In a similar setting without any updates to Firefox 3 or its components (add-ons/plug-ins) it some times generates a pop-up for a download. I found some of the settings did not stick.

    This is ZA Pro:
    ZoneAlarm Pro version:
    vsmon version:
    Driver version:
    ZoneAlarm Browser Security: 1.5.322.0
    ZoneAlarm ForceField Spyware Scanner: 1.5.322.0
    ZoneAlarm ForceField Anti-Phishing Database:
    ZoneAlarm ForceField Spyware Sites Database: 04.155

    Anyone else having problems getting settings to stick?

    I am thinking I have to close and restart ZA after the full Win boot is completed.

    Normally this is due to corrupted database or the system not allowing the settings to be saved.

    A simple test you can do is to customise the settings at your wish and then shutdown ZA (right click the Z icon near the clock --> shutdown ZA), wait 2 minutes, re-open ZA and check the settings are saved.

    Also note that if you have updated or reinstalled the drivers you will loose the custom settings. See here: Retention of Customised Program Settings

    I would stick to default setting and avoid activating components control. A minimal misconfiguration can cause problems and system instability.
