  • Win 10 creators update: ZA Firewall is not recognized in Security Center

    Hi

    Yesterday I updated (well, forced to) to win 10 creators update,
    removed old za and installed the latest version 15.1.501.17249.

    But 'Windows Defender Security Center' is not recognizing ZA Firewall.
    ZA Antivirus, is recognized.

    I guess it is not a big deal, but annoying and a help will be appreciated.

    Well, looks like a bug in Defender Centre. In fact, in WIN10 Creators update you can go into control panel, system security, security and maintenance... and ZA is reported working correctly both AV and firewall

    Thanks,

      Yea Fax, it is reported there.
      I guess it is a bug in Windows after all, or as usual we should say.

      Thanks again.

        Hello,

        We are aware of this issue with the 'Windows Defender Security Center' not reporting that ZoneAlarm firewall is protecting the PC.

        Be assured ZoneAlarm firewall is active, working and protecting your PC.
        This is purely a detection issue with the Creator's update and we are working with Microsoft to resolve this in the next update.

        You PC is still completely protected with ZoneAlarm.

        Best regards

          hello,

          I use the Zone Alarm free version and I also experiment this 'non detection' by Windows 10 (Creator updtae) and I have a notification that my system is not protected by any firewall.

          May I ask you what about the prod version of Zone Alarm firewall?
          Is it detected or not as a working firewal ?

          Thank you.

            Is there ZA reported correctly? If yes, then you can ignore the error.
