For the past week, I have been getting a security alert from Windows saying that Zonealarm has failed to start and that I am therefore without a firewall. Everyday, including since this morning, when I open ZA it is displaying "all systems active", and all seems well. Why does this happen, and why am I unable to get Windows to see that nothing has been changed. I know that I can get the alerts to ignore my firewall status, but why has this started to happen, when all has been fine for months?
I had to use it as it kept reporting that Comodo firewall was off. In a way right as I'd uninstalled it and was running on XP's firewall at the time. Refreshed the folder and all back to normal. Seems that this folder can become corrupt and reports false security pop-ups.
I can only think it's a setting in ZA firewall. I don't use it myself and usually refreshing the repository re-sets windows to find the security software on your PC. Sorry it didn't help, maybe someone using ZA might know why it's not telling windows it's running.
