    Default Free ZA 7 STILL installs MailFrontier!!

    Today, I was offered an update to ZA Free.
    v70_408_000During the installation I got a message that said something along the lines that MailFrontier was already installed, and that the new version of ZA would uninstall it and replace it with something with a name
    like ZA Junk Mail filter.
    (Unfortunately I am reporting the message based on memory.)I clicked OK to proceed even though I had uninstalled Mail Frontier some months ago based on this thread herehttp://forums.zonealarm.com/zonelabs/board/message?board.id=gen&message.id=42329
    Well, guess what?
    I now have Mail Frontier installed again!!
    I do not understand that based on the above earlier thread and today's message.
    Why would ZA continue to install something they regard as a "known issue"?
    On
    the ZA Control Center Panel, however, it says that Basic Mail Safe is disabled.
    This apparently is the default setting.
    Is this Mail Frontier?Should I uninstall Mail Frontier again?
    And if so, what method should I use?
    P.S.
    No mention of ZA Junk Mail Filter anywhere.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:7.0

    Hi!Latest ZA7free comes embedded with ZASS 7.. it will install non functional add-on from ZASS (e.g. mailfrontier and right click AV scan)If you want a ZA, 'free' of unwanted add-on, you will need to revert back to ZAfree version 6.XCheers,Fax

    fax--Thanks.
    Does your statement "it will install non functional add-on from ZASS (e.g. mailfrontier and right click AV scan)" mean that Mail Frontier is in fact not working, and therefore affecting the performance of my PC?
    If so then I will not worry about it.
    Also by ZASS I assume you mean Zone Alarm Security Suite, which I do not have.
    Just the free ZA 7 firewall.

    fax--Again thanks.
    I am sorry to be a bother and I really should have asked before.
    Since Mail Frontier is non functional, can I
    uninstall it (if that term applies since it is non-functional) by the procedure described by malkajefhttp://forums.zonealarm.com/zonelabs...ssage.id=42348orjust delete the folder and reclaim the ~15MB of spaceor?

    I did the delete procedure and MailFrontier no longer opens in Outlook. BUT, there were still registry entries and a MailFrontier folder in ZA folder. I did regedit and removed all traces of MailFrontier and removed the folder from ZA as well. It seems cleaner that way...

    I, too, did the uninstall procedure described in the earlier thread.
    I was surprised to see that no only did the contents of the MailFrontier folder disappear, but so did the folder itself.
    I suppose I should go through the Registry as well.However, I realize that some of Mail Frontier will be hard to find without reading alot.
    For example, vsdant.sysHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet\Ser vices\vsdatant
