Hi blue -

There should be a way to turn off that notice. Have you checked with the ZA forum for info about this?


EDIT:

Try this link found on the ZA forum as there is a way to set it to not nag you though this has not worked some ... that is, to set it to manual in "Check for updates" section of the user interface. Otherwise, it can be set for 60 days at which point you can reset it again for 60 days each time the pop-up arrives.

Hi Charleyo one can set the upgrade to 60days only once after 60days the pop up does not accept another 60days it just keep popping
 up evertime. but i will try to set the upgrade to manual.

Charleyo you are lucky you don't get the pop up.

drhayden1 you have been a great help, if l cant control the pop through manual setting then l will switch to comodo.
