I don't know whether customizing the Norton Firewall program settings or installing Wins 7 SP1, Zappiti can now auto scape images (jacket and background) without any issue.
@McW .... thanks for the info and will remember this tip if i ever need to scrape pictures.
@Waterzoo ... you may want to upgrade the Win OS first and verify if Zappiti can scrape or not. If not, customise your firewall program settings.
@twol .... thanks for the link regarding french version as it is not necessary to dl it.
