    Default Obsolte entries in Program Control list

    ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:7.0.337.000XP Home + SP2 + critical updates
    I have found dozens of obsolete entries in the list under Programs in Program Control.
    Is there a simpler way of deleting them than looking at each and every entry's properties individually and then deleting it when told it can't be found?




    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Many thanks Oldsod.
    What an astonishing difference it made to the length of the listing.
    I also
    removed the ZAlog files, transplanting them to a temporary folder in case they should necessary.
    Is it safe to delete them?

    The ZA Log files contain the previous alerts. The older ones are just stored logs, while the present file is being used.

    fwdb*.txt is for troubleshooting file when contacing ZA Technical Support. Can be deleted in the safe mode. The same applies to the tvDebug.log(s).
    The xDB*.tmp are just information files for the ZA if it had issues shutting down or there was a windows issue. The ZA will use files for a reference. These can be deleted if they are very dated, again just in the safe mode. The zips can be deleted as well. But if you contacted ZA Technical Support and asked for help, they would require most of these logs.

    The best advice for reading or understanding the ZALog.txt is at Guru Hoov site. Or use this link and use the "Click Here" link to access his site.
