This is a trivial but annoying issue: Almost every time I log onto my Windows XP SP3 computer, ZoneAlarm Extreme Security 10.1.065 throws up a "spash" window saying, "You are Protected/Questions? We're here to help," that I have to close before proceeding. In most other programs such splash screens either disappear after the software finishes loading or have a check box to prevent their subsequent appearance. In this case you would think the little blue 'tray' icon would be enough to reassure me.
Does this annoying window have any real purpose?
Is there any way from preventing its appearance?
