This is how I fixed the problem.
1. Go to safe mode and uninstall ZA.2. Reboot as usual, then search your computer for ZA files left over. Delete them.3. Go to "Run" type in "regedit" look in software for any ZA entries and delete them.4. Go to System in Control Panel and open "Automatic Updates" and set it to Notify but not install updates.5. Go into Add/Remove Programs and select show all updates.
Delete Microsoft updates that have been installed recently, mine were in the last 2 days.6. Go to http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/fre...seHistory.html
and download the ZA version
7.0.462.0007. When I installed it, after adding my email address it automatically signed me in with the correct product key.8.Go to ZA preference and set it to manual updates,(even though it will tell you it's a bad idea).9. Then set Internet Security Zone(Under Firewall-Main)
You should be good to go!!
Make sure to check updates periodically and be careful not to let Microsoft updates get turned back to automatic or it will install the problematic updates again.
