Re: zonealarm firewall wont install
ZA will not install unless you fully update VISTA with all Service Packs and updates. If you still have problems after updating the system double check your are not running the installer in compatibility mode.
Once you have updated the system, turn ON windows firewall. ZA will take care of disabling it. Considering you have experienced malware infections you may want to boost up your protection and replacing ZAfree + your own AV with the ZAfree + antivirus (http://www.zonealarm.com/security/en...s-firewall.htm)
It would be important you fully update the system with most recent version of the software. You can check with Secunia if you run vulnerable software. Please also note that ZA is compatible with latest version of JAVA 6 and not JAVA 7.
