Default Zone Alarm

Hi, i've noticed when zone alarm automatically updates, it always minimises any windows i have open.. including games. This is inconvenient at the best of times and the problem gets worse if i'm playing a game like GTR2 or GT legends online. Does anyone know a way around this?

I am not keen on disabling automatic updates as I would possibly forget to update it manually and I am very aware of the problems involved with not having an up to date firewall.

I dont have ZA installed but there may be a setting just for what you need, like do not ask to update, auto update without notification, etc

Hmm i have the free version of ZA and the options are pretty basic. Can't see any relevant options. I guess the pro version would have more settings.
