Thanks. I ordered the machine explicitely without any security tool, as I had been using ZA for years on several machines and intended to keep it that way. I don't see any trace of such software (nothing in the program utility, no folder in C/Programs", apart from "Zone Labs". Could it be that they are copied as an image with Vista and that they remove them if the customer happens not to want them? Hardly I think. But the info is great! Thanks!
