Latest Update blocks Windows Update plus
Two serious issues started just after installation of latest release of Zone Alarm Security Suite 9.1.008.000. Both have been confirmed as a Zone Alarm problem by removal and reinstallation of program.
First, the Windows Module Installer service repeatedly starts and stops, making Windows Update impossible.
Second, I have Acrobat 8 Pro installed and the Acrobat Print routine and the create PDF from a document no longer work.
Both of these issues have been discussed thoroughly with both Microsoft and Adobe. A clean boot solves both problems.
After removal of Zone Alarm, both Windows update and Acrobat work as intended. Reinstallation of Zone Alarm causes the bad behavior to reappear. Shutting down Zone Alarm is NOT sufficient to eliminate the problem.
Please, can you issue a fix for these problems, or should I go back to using the older version?

What I can suggest you is to fully remove ZA, including any left over or settings and install ZA without touching the defaults or importing any ZA backup. Report to ZA official support meanwhile.
