    Default How to reduce the number of alerts

    I have ZoneAlarms Free 10.2, running under Windows XP. My browser is Firefox 14.0.

    Since upgrading to this version of ZoneAlarms, I have been getting far more alerts than before. Can anyone give me some simple step-by-instructions for reducing the number of alerts.

    Ideally, I would like to be alerted when a new program attempts to access the Internet - and nothing else. I especially don't want to see two or three alerts every time I try to download a file.

    I have studied the ZoneAlarms Help topics on reducing alerts, but they just take me round in a circle.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mike

    You may want to disable the identity web protection (I think its called like this in ZAfree?) not to be prompted for downloading files.

    You may also want to start from scratch (clean install) if you have upgraded (installing on top) of an existing ZA. Settings may be corrupted. Keep the defaults at install and then after a couple of weeks of use (ZA will have learned your system) raise the ZA application control to MAX.

    Thanks,
    Fax

    Many thanks for your prompt reply, Fax. Turning off Identity Web Protection (in fact, it's called "Identity & Data" in my version) seems to have killed the multiple download alerts.

    I'll see how I get on with that, and then perhaps try your other suggestion as well.

    Thanks again. Your reply was most helpful.
