    Default [SOLVED] Strange/weird characters in Application Control Settings for Googledrive

    Hi,

    I have recently installed ZoneAlarm free.

    When doing some manual configuration for some applications I noticed some weird characters for GoogleDrive.

    This was in the Application Control Settings window under program name.

    Looks like some sort of font/language setting issue.

    Has anyone else found this?

    Hello;
    Is this a older version of ZA Free?

    The More information you post more likely other users here will be able to help and suggest potential remedial actions.

    Right click the ZA icon near the clock --> About --> Copy to Clipboard --> Paste in a reply here. Mind to remove the license key (if applicable).

    Exact version of OS used? XP SP3? Windows 7 SP? Windows 8? 8.1? Localized Language version? English version?
    Other security Programs running on the desktop PC? Laptop? Netbook?

    Since when have you are experiencing the problem? Did ZA ever worked correctly?

    Hi GeorgeV,

    thanks for the reply.

    yes I am running the latest version.

    ZoneAlarm Free Firewall version: 13.1.211.000
    Vsmon version: 13.1.211.0
    Driver version: 13.1.123.0

    Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. Language is English.

    I just installed Zone Alarm in the last few days. So no, I have never seen Zone alarm ever show this program - googledrivesync.exe - correctly (in Application Control Settings). All other programs show up correctly.

    Other security programs running - Microsoft Security Essentials.

    Laptop - Toshiba Satellite L630.

    What do you think? Try reinstalling google drive and see what happens?

    Thanks, Robert

    Have you tried to remove the entry from ZA application control to see this is recreated the same way when you use that service/program?

    Thanks,

    An update...

    I rebooted the laptop and the problem disappeared...zone alarm1.png

    My guess is that this may have been the first reboot after I installed Zone alarm free. The reboot was needed to clean something up related to the google drive sync process.

    Anyway, thanks for your help.

    Robert
