    That would make me want to drop ZA immediately. It appears to be a blatant attempt to get you to upgrade to a paid version.

    Reminds me of those bogus Security software popups that hold systems hostage when users click on it in an attempt to close the thing.

    Thanks to all replys above. The only reason I'm using ZA is Outpost Free FW kept showing popups to tell me it was stopping support early in October but the link to upgrade did heehaw. I'm not one of the gullible who believes everything and I trust Avast AV 5 to keep my laptop safe.

    Seems remarkably like the very old maps, where, in the blank spaces where people had not yet been, could be found written the statement, "Here be dragons"...
