Thread: zauninst.exe running all the time

    Default zauninst.exe running all the time

    Systemanalizer keeps trying to shut down zauninst.exe and za catches it and asks me if I want to allow or not. Zauninst.exe looks to me like a zonealarm uninstaller. Why should it be running unless I am trying to uninstall za? It seems to run by it's self after a reboot. Program checker can't verify the hash as being authentic so I am wondering if it is a trojan or some such nasty? Is there some reason why zauninst.ext runs all the time or should it not?

    After further investigation, it seems that System Mechanic system analyzer is turning zauninst.exe on when checking all uninstallers and za is catching it trying to turn it off again. Strange, I will have to keep watching to see if this is indeed what is happening.

    Dan, I notice the same thing. Did you ever resolve this? -TL

    Nope, still happens every time System Mechanic runs.

    I guess I will either uninstall SM, or try to teach ZA to not object when SM wants to stop zauninst.exe.
