There was only one recent update that had a problem that I am aware of. It assumes (wrongly) that everyone that has the free firewall also has the new AntiVirus and, when checking for updates, flagged the lack of the AV as needing an update. I don't remember if they finally came out with a fixed update or if I downloaded the program again (which apparently did get fixed) and installed it over the old installation (which would retain one's settings). I didn't waste any time agonizing over it.

My ZA is well trained on all of my Windows systems.
Post Edit: I just checked the folder where I keep downloaded program installation program files and the latest one for ZA was installed on 08/06/2012 (I always keep several of the most recent versions of downloaded programs so I can fall back if a new version has problems) so I must have downloaded it from the website and installed it over the existing installation (I have a good memory; it's just short). If you are still having problems with the update popups, just go to ZA's website and download the latest version, then install it over the existing installation.
