I don't know how many of you are using ZoneAlarm Free Firewall and SuperAntiSpyware free but I am having issues.
I have been using both applications for years now, with no issues.
But recently I have been unable to update SAS.
When I try to update I get a 'Definitions Update Failed' message.
If I look in my ZA logs I see 'SuperAntiSpyware application was blocked from connecting to the internet (127.0.0.1:Port 12080)'.
I have checked my ZA Application Control Settings, and SAS is allowed and trusted.
I have 'SuperAntiSpyware Application - SUPERANTISPYWARE.EXE' and 'SuperAntiSpyware Update Application - SSUPDATE64.EXE' enabled for inbound and outbound access.
The only way I can get SAS to update is to turn off my ZA Application Control, update SAS, then turn on my ZA Application Control.
I am using:
Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit
ZA free Firewall 11.0.000.504 (Just the firewall, not the antivirus etc)
SAS free 126.96.36.1992
