    Default Buffer Overflow When Installing ForceField

    I tried to install FF but it gave me a Buffer Overflow as it was about to
    complete the install. Has anyone experienced this before? Any ideas? Thanks

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:
    Product Name:Other ZoneAlarm Product

    Clean out all of the Temp folders to remove the blotched install's files and get a new fresh beginning.
    Turn off any other security running and make sure they do not start with windows startup before installing.
    Got enough memory or pagefiling?
    Memory cards are okay and not defective?
    De-Fragmented the disk before installing?
    Did a disk check by windows before installing?
    Tried a system file check before installing?
    Fully updated windows before installing?
    Turned off the printer application before installing?
    Had all opened windows and other applications closed before attempting the installation?
    Did you attempt the install of the ZAFF after a long session in windows or immediately after a re-boot?

    I have 3GB of memory in my PC.
    I cleaned out all the temp folders before installing.
    I have also attempted a re-install after a re-boot.

    Quite a tall order for having to install ZAFF application. A new user
    will be over-whelmed with all this pre-requisites.

    I have an Anti-Virus and Ant-Spyware installed, I will disable them. They
    haven't caused me much trouble in the past during an install that is why
    I did not turn them off.

    Instead of doing Q and A one at a time, I gave you a general shotgun approach (pellet the entire target and you cannot miss).
    Even though you have 3 G mem, if one card is bad, it should be checked out.

    My guess is disable the other security and clean the Temp folders ane reboot before attempting the ZAFF install.
    That probably will be enough to get it installed.

    But if the other security have networking/firewalling features these could be at issue - web scanner, email checks, content filtering, spy site blocking, cookie filtering, IM shields, browser protection, etc.

    Also any other windows and networking applications shoukld be closed (desktop searches, IMs, P2P, etc).

    Also the failed install event should be seen in the Event Viewer and the info and ID can be researched.

    I disabled both security products and it installed this time round, but it will not open a browser inProtected or Private mode. It only opens a browser in Unprotected mode.
    The ForceField Toolbar will not enable either.

    I will have to un-install it, and live without it, thanks for your help.

    Very possible the other security applications is providing some form of browser protection preventing the ZAFF from hooking into the browser properly.
    This is one of the problems of mixing and matching various security applications together to make a security suite - there are often conflicts or overlapping of protection.
