    can you be more specific?
    Where did you find it? It is a boxed version? Download?

    If it is a boxed version most probably is still 7.0

    <hr><hr>kingkoala, as you can see this is definitely a new different version/ upgrade
    from 7.0.483. It looks very impressive - I must say. If you still have an active subscription, you may upgrade for free.
    { As a suggestion: there 'may' be a need to properly un-install your 7.0.483 from your pc first; before installing the new
    [*]At the very least you can do this...You can try this: just prior to new downloading attempt, on your current ZA &gt; go to &quot;Overview&quot; &gt; Preferences &gt; General - &quot;uncheck the box for&quot; = 'Load ZoneAlarm at startup' &gt; click once, wait - it may take a few
    seconds for it to register, but it will clear the box.[*]
    Please restart/ reboot. &lt;
    Now, download and install your new
    Unloading the current/ old version will ensure less conflicts between the old version and new version; after install you will have to re-start your pc. { This is a Super Tip - that will help prevent some 'true vector issues' on upgrades/ updates }
    [*]Also follow some of the basic tips and guidelines here &gt; } ] <hr>NaiveMelody NYC 8-25-08 - Come And Get It - Badfinger[/list][*][/list]

    Thanks for the info. I wish I had waited for your reply.
    However, I also asked Zonelabs Customer Support, the same question and recieved an email with the following
    link for a free upgrade ( but no advice)
    I fearlessly jumped in - foolishly as it turns out.
    I tried upgrading from ZASS 7.0.483.000 on WinXpPro with disastrous results.
    The upgrade installation said I did not have admin rights part way through the installation but still asked for a reboot.
    On reboot Windows hung. After a few attempts a reboot worked. ZASS was not working, obviously.
    I then ran the uninstall from control panel. It eventually worked, complaining that it could not log into the vextor service.
    On re-install of v7.0.483.000 I had lost my config settings - my last backup was 12 months old - better than nothing.

    The simplest procedure for Updating ZA is to:1.Download the ZA8.0.015.000installerpreferably with IE7 and no Download Manager/accelerator like Get-Right) (Click the Red Download Now Button)ZAFree ZAAV On your current ZA, UNcheck "Load ZA... at startup" (under Overview --&gt; Preferences tab)3. Reboot the Computer. So that vsmon.exe/TrueVector will be removed from Memory4. Install the new update (clean or upgrade) and Accept the default Setting, Auto-Learn Mode and Choose Trusted Zone, not Internet Zone..Here is a List of the Most common User problems..a.) The first thing a Hacker, Trojan or Virus tries to do if they infect your computer or gain access to your Computer, thru an Email Attachment or pop-up on a Website or user over-ridding the Security alerts by the firewall, is to shutdown, any Firewall, AV/AS.. That is why some users have problems updating ZoneAlarm or any other security program..vsmon.exe/TrueVector is the first thing that loads when your computer starts to boot up, the ZA tray Icon is just a Icon that loads later in the Boot-up process..and TrueVector /vsmon.exe is the last thing to shutdown when your computer shuts down to insure that your computer is always protected..That is why " if Load ZoneAlarm on startup in not Un-checked" and computer Rebooted, Truevector will stay in Memory and will not be removed during Install or Upgrade, in fact the install may fail because Truevector in an attempt to protect your computer will think that the New Install attempt to install a new version of Truevector may be a Hacker Attempting to shut down Truevector..That is why it is very Important to use the Un-Check "Start ZA on Startup" method so that a New Upgrade Copy of TrueVector/vsmon.exe can be installed..b.) some Computer Users think that if one Firewall and anti-Virus is good, two or three different ones running at the same time must be better?

    5.)- have you properly un-installed any previous firewall and/or anti-virus?? = this needs to be done - Most new pc/laptops come with pre-installed security software, which should be properly un-installed prior to installing any ZoneAlarm firewall product. <HR>

    Just One, Not Two -- Never use two software Firewalls at the same time. Completely uninstall one before installing another. Use the vendor's uninstall utility or if not available, use the Windows XP add/remove software tool in the control panel.<HR>Just One, Not Two -- Never use two anti-virus products at the same time.
