ZoneAlarm is blocking my SAS updates

Recommended Posts



I don't know how many of you are using ZA free and SAS free but I am having issues.

I have been using both applications for years now, with no issues.

But recently I have been unable to update SAS.

When I try to update I get a 'Definitions Update Failed' message.


If I look in my ZA logs I see 'SuperAntiSpyware application was blocked from connecting to the internet ( 12080)'.


I have checked my ZA Application Control Settings, and SAS is allowed and trusted.

I have 'SuperAntiSpyware Application - SUPERANTISPYWARE.EXE' and 'SuperAntiSpyware Update Application - SSUPDATE64.EXE' enabled for inbound and outbound access.


The only way I can get SAS to update is to turn off my ZA Application Control, update SAS, then turn on my ZA Application Control.


Any ideas??


I am using:

Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit

ZA free Firewall (Just the firewall, not the antivirus etc)

SAS free

Surely you should be posting this on the ZA forum.

From what you have posted it sounds like a problem with ZA not SAS.
