ZoneAlarm whilst logged off

    Hi

    Have Win XP Pro, and use ZoneAlarm Pro, which runs as an ICS host.

    I found that adding a value into the registry, my Broadband connection
    (which uses a USB connection) will remain on even if I log off the computer.

    If I do this (so to allow the other computers to use the net), will the
    (host) computer be protected against intrusion (as ZoneAlarm won't be
    running), or will it be susceptible?

    Thanks

    Err - VSMON, the actually firewall, WILL be running.

    ZLCLIENT, the ZoneAlarm CLIENT and GUI, won't.

    So, yes, you'll be as protected (if not more so!) then when you're
    logged on, since ZoneAlarm will still be up to snuff protecting you.
