    Running win 2000 pro SP4. every time i reboot, certain program settings are lost. for example, my zonealarm settings are lost, and all program net access authorizations have to be re-authorized, when the programs attempt to connect to the net. It will not remember the "always use this answer" option, that you can check in zonealarm to keep from having to continue to re-authorize the program each time it is run. Does anyone know what could be causing this? thanks in advance for any advice..

    I was about to move this to Software, but you say other programs are having problems.

    Which version of ZoneAlarm are you running, free or pro? Is it just the initial startup on the internet that it forgets, or any programs that are wanting to go out/come in? If its the former, have a look at this:

    Depending on your version (I'm on Pro), look for this:

    Program Control tab, Main option. On the Alert Adviser, is it set to Auto or Manual? Also, the same for Program Control.
