I had a problem today with ZoneAlarm Pro (7.0.483.000). When my computer started up this morning, I kept getting the message "True Vector service has encountered an error and needs to shut down." I tried rebooting, turning off and on my virus program, turning off and on Zonealarm, etc. and kept getting the error message when Zone Alarm tried to run or whenever I tried the button "check for update now."
I finally did a clean uninstall, deleted out the files recommended and reinstalled ZoneAlarm Pro following Don Hoover's excellent instructions; I saved and restored my ZoneAlarm settings and they restored properly on the 2nd try.
ZoneAlarm seems to be working ok now (at least no errors). I can do the "check for update" and it does go out and check for update with no error.
However, I notice that I no longer have any firewall logs. I do have OSfirewall logs, Program logs and Anti-spyware logs displaying. I haven't looked at the firewall logs for a while, so don't know if they stopped because of this morning's error, or if they had stopped earlier.
I have not had any problems with ZoneAlarm at all for many months, so today's problems surprised me. I've searched through the messages and see people with Vista having this issue but didn't see XP with this issue.
Is there a setting I might have missed somewhere or a way to turn on the firewall logs? I don't have wireless, just cable Internet service and no router.
Thanks in advance
