XP Pro (fully updated except for KB928365 & KB928366), ZoneAlarm Pro (very latest version, updated)
I've had multiple problems for quite a while; such as not being able to migrate from Windows Update to Microsoft Update, update failures, Office 2007 Ultimate CD#2 problems, and much more. True Vector is somehow keeping my admin account, the one I used to Install XP Pro with and everything else, is causing "access denied" errors when some areas of the registry need modification. Even if I first tell ZAP to unload itself, the True Vector engine is still running and causing access denied problems. I have EVERYthing turned off in ZAP except for the firewall itself. Still, I have to boot into safe mode and disable the true vector service to keep from getting these access denied errors when trying to install SOME Microsoft updates or products, or even just trying to use MSCONFIG or REGEDIT to manually edit startups.
I don't want ZAP to mess with my registry at all. I just want a firewall, and that is all. How can I make True Vector stop trying to protect the registry?
