View Full Version : Zone Alarm 3.1.395 Auto-Dialing

01-10-2002, 12:35 AM
Ever since I installed an updated version of the free ZA a couple of weeks ago, my PC automatically dials up the net at bootup. It's very annoying and I have searched the ZA site but cannot see anything. Today I saw a message in another forum which describes the same problem and it appears this is a bug with the latest release. I would suggest that existing users avoid this release and stick with the previous version as there doesnt appear to be a fix posted by ZA yet.

Read about the dialup problem here...

I have that same version and have not had a problem. Try turning off Auto updates to see if it works.

Autoupdates is set to manual - still dials out automatically. Maybe its just a prob with Win98 & ZA. Nevemind, previous version actually has a better interface so will stick with that.

and your point is?

Parry, I'm sure I read a thread about a week ago with the same prob as you're having ... I think it had something to do with ZA contacting home base as soon as it started, but nothing to do with Auto-Update.
