I want to reset the ZoneAlarm's list of programs that have been secured / denied access to the web and stuff, because I accidentally blocked a critical program and I can't play my game (maplestory, if you must know XD), as I blocked the anti-hacking system that starts before the game itself.

is there a way to do this without reinstalling Zonealarm?

Which Zone Alarm?
You should be able to fo it from the Program Control on the Programs tab.
A drastic measure is to restart in safe mode and delete in windows\internet logs\ files that end with .RDB and .LDB extension. There are three of them. Bear in mind, this deletes ALL your settings, good and bad.

If only few programs are badly set, just left click on the cell where you now have X and change it to Allow.

Do you know the name of the program that you accidentally blocked? If so, click on Program control on the left. On the general tab make sure that SmartDefense Advisor is set to auto, then click on the programs tab on the upper right. On mine this is the second tab. Scroll down to the program in question, right click on the program and click remove. The system will automatically configure the settings for the program the next time the program is accessed.

Hope this helps,
