Zone Alarm updates

  curly 13:38 27 Nov 2005

I am using the free edition of Zone Alarm as a Firewall. I operate Windows XP. My version is out of date and I receive messages from Zone Alarm saying so and offering the option to download an update. I tick the box but the download never occurs. This also happened some months ago and I then deleted Zone Alarm and downloaded the up to date version. I would welcome suggestions as to what I should do to enable updates in the normal manner.

ZoneAlarm updates are comparatively infrequent and it's best to set for Manual updating - there's always at least one thread on the forums advising one is available.

You don't need to reinstall ZA. Just install over the old version (upgrade rather than clean install) and click Yes when asked about the type of installation. Your configuration will then be retained, except you will have to choose Manual rather than Automatic updates as the latter is the default.

In any case if you don't update immediately a new version comes out there's nothing to worry about.
