That's an interesting idea, and it would be nice if it worked. But if I understand ZoneAlarm correctly, you either have to approve manually for each time it needs to communicate outside, or you have to allow it free communication. If there are legitimate needs for Acrobat Reader to communicate across the web (like for updates or for document content), then an average user would pretty much be forced to open it up altogether in ZoneAlarm to avoid a significant nuisance factor with repeated alerts.

Anyone else out there that can shed more light on whether this is a practical solution?
