The instruction for cleaning 3rd party AV and clean install of Zone Alarm install are below
1. Download the latest version http://server.iad.liveperson.net/hc/...10&action=view

or Plan-B (Download ZAFREE without the Antivirus feature)
1. Re-download the latest version of ZA free from here: Looking for the latest version?
Watch out to choose the right installer, i.e. ZA free WITHOUT the antivirus if you have another Antivirus installed?
2. Remove your current ZA version (in XP use Windows add/remove programs)
3. Remove other security tools installed. Use http://www.appremover.com/ to double check no left overs are present.
4. Clean your system and registry with the Free Ccleaner.exe
