ZoneAlarm locks desktop on startup
Product Name=FREE ZoneAlarm
Description of technical Issue=
When I start-up my computer Zone Alarm does not load and locks up my entire desktop, forcing me to power down manually. It usually works upon resart but today it took me FOUR tries before I was able to access my computer, let alone the Internet.
This has been an intermittent problem until today...
I used to get an error message saying that "ZoneAlarm has encountered a problem and needs to shut down" but now I don't even get that!
Here is my computer info:
Microsoft Windows XP
Professional Version 2002
Service Pack 1
Intel Celeron 735 MHz
128 MB of RAM
And, yes, I have Ad-Aware SE Personal and Spybot installed but I have been using this same configuration for a couple of years now with no problems.
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

There is a newer FREE ZA version 6.5.731 that many have had success with just recently. If you want to fully remove your previous ZA version first to avoid possible installation conflicts you can use the uninstall instructions below. These are the manual instructions to remove the older ZA files from the previous version before you install the new ZA. You can use Windows safe mode for these manual instructions if you have problems booting your system or if you can not remove the indicated ZA files in normal mode .
