Splash ups

  flobby 11:33 05 Apr 2003

Hi All, I have Zone Alarm and Pop up stopper installed on my computer. And what I would like to know is HOW can I get rid of the splash screen that appears on boot up. I know it is not major but it is annoying.
Thanks for your help.
Cheers, Flobby

1) Right click on the Zone Alarm icon and select properties.

2) On the Shortcut tab, in the target field, enter in exactly:

"C\Program Files\Zone Labs\ZoneAlarm\zonealarm.exe" -nosplash

personal i like to see it, as i know it has loaded!

And you need to have the Pro version of Popup Stopper do disable the splash screen for that utility (PanicWare).

I have right clicked and I do not get properties to select. All I get is "Engage internet lock" "Stop all internet activity" "Restore Zone alarm Control centre" and "Shutdown Zone Alarm"

Cheers, Flobby

It is the desktop icon you need, not the one in the taskbar. If you do not have one already, create a desktop shortcut and use that icon.

xtreme - don't you get indication in your taskbar that it has loaded?

xtreme_computing I am running XP and I cannot get your input to work I know there is a way because I have done it before.

Using ME, in windows explorer go to

C/windows/start menu/ programs/ startup

You may find a shotcut to Zone Alarm there - if so you will find all that xtreme mentions already there except for the "nosplash" which you should add. On mine there is a space between the exe" and nosplash but no hyphen

sorry i should have been more clear.

if you goto start/programs/zonelabs/and right click the zonealarm/properties

then you can do what i explained above
