If your ZoneAlarm continuously pops up alerts for applications you regularly use and trust, you may want to switch to the Auto-learn
program control setting. Auto-learn setting will enable ZoneAlarm to remember programs you use regularly and it will stop producing alerts about them. This is the default setting for the first 21 days after ZoneAlarm installation, after which it will prompt you to go to the Max setting.
To set program control to Auto-learn:
- Go to the Program Control panel and move the slider to Auto.
Other settings to reduce program alerts:
- If you have a program that you trust and don't want to wait for Auto-learn to learn it, go to the Program Control / Programs panel to give it Full Trust access. See "Setting permissions for specific programs" in the online Help if you need more information.
- Make sure that SmartDefense Advisor is set to Auto (the default setting) on the Program Control panel so that you see a program alert only if there is no automatic setting available for a program.
- Always select "Remember this setting" in program alerts before you choose "Allow" or "Deny" so you won't be asked about it again.
