ZoneAlarm Pro blocking Microsoft updates.

  Daibus 11:57 23 Dec 08

I have recently installed ZoneAlarm Pro but it blocks the installation of Microsoft updates, deeming it necessary for me to disable the firewall while installation of XP updates are being carried out.

How do I set ZoneAlarm Pro to allow me to install these updates from Microsoft?

Many thanks.

go to firewall then the prog tab and if the ms upgrade prog is shown right click and then allow. If the ms prog is not shown enter it and then allow.

Many thanks for your reply.

On the programme list in ZoneAlarm Pro there are about 14 Microsoft entries.

Which would be the one to allow updates?

it should say msupdate or something similar

I think I have found the entry now and reset it to ask.
