    I am trying in this application to have certain setting stick like under the privacy section having certain sites to accept cookies. Well I can do that but when I restart my computer the changes disappear and I have to redo them again. Does anyone know what is wrong?

    How do I make the changes stick.

    Running ZoneArlarmPro Version

    Do not reboot your PC after you change any ZA setting because it will always use the backup of your setting on a reboot or bad shut down.
    So after making changes shut down your PC and then when you start the PC again your new setting will be there.
    Then you can with the Pro version make a backup of your setting.
    Go to Overview, Preferences tab and your see the backup button.

    unfortunately I shut it down and everything but the settings didn't hold. I like the fact that I can make a backup but it doesn't solve the problem?

    look here

    You can delete a program from the program control list and let it ask you again and see if that helps.
    You still need to shut down for it to remember.

    How long have you used ZA?
