I've just upgraded to ZA Security Suite 5, thinking that it would be better than Pro 4.5. How wrong can one person be?

Use 5 and never use mIRC (or any other IRC client) again, until someone finds out how to re-enable IRC access through it.

Every time I try to connect to an IRC server, ZoneAlarm disconnects me and shows the message [ Blocked by Zone Labs Security ] in the status window. I've tried everything I can think of to try to get around this, and nothing. I'm pissed off.

If anyone else upgrades from 4.5 to 5, and has the same problem... and works out how to get around it, I'd love to know what you did.
