Thread: Problem with Game Mode...

  1. #1

    Exclamation Problem with Game Mode...

    ZA Extreme Security 11.0.768.000
    Windows 7 x64

    computer box/tab > application control > network firewall ... i have this slider set to 'min', to reduce popups asking for program permissions.

    but when i open/close the 'game mode' window, it will cause that setting to behave as if the slider is set back to 'auto', even though it's still showing 'min'. i notice this because i get more ZA popups asking for program permissions. to fix, i have to move slider to another setting then back to 'min'.

    can anyone else reproduce this problem or is it just me?

    Not a gamer here.I see you're a long time user.Most likely you have read the following already.In the event you haven't.Take a peek.

    Game Mode temporarily suppresses most ZoneAlarm security software scans, product updates, and alerts, so that you can play games on your computer with fewer interruptions.

    the problem is, this happens even though i don't enable game mode. i simply open and close the game mode window. and the setting behavior gets changed, unless i retoggle it.

    Could be corrupt ZoneAlarm Database.Try to Reset.

    Tools > Preferences > Reset to Default.Reboot

    Use defaults settings & do not Restore Saved Settings from the old install.

    See if that fixes issue.If not clean install is in order.

    i've already tried a clean install. it seems like a problem with ZA, so it should be reproducible by other users.

    Again and again... you need to report to ZA official support, first to understand if it is replicable and second to get your issue escalated to development. Here we can't unfortunately fix bugs. I cannot replicate your issue here, and your settings: "MIN and game mode" makes little sense. You should not get pop-ups even with control at MAX normally. You probably have a very noisy ad-hoc setup. Unfortunately you always experience problems with ZA, its unclear why, after so many posts and so many years you are still with ZA, LOL.
