    Default Re: Cannot enter ZA but it is running.

    I tried reinstalling.
    And trowing away the files in internet log.

    But it didn't help. I get so fet up with this. So first it didn't work, that suddenly it did and than after the update i get the same f*cking error!

    P4 360 3GHz
    1GB ram
    Sli motherbord: Asus p5ld2 SLi Deluxe

    Nope! ZA 65.722.000 is the latest version I know, and it doesn't work normally :robotmad:

    I tried all the suggested solution, registre edit, deleting files from internetlog, deleting the vsconfig from system32 - nothing worked.

    Now I will uninstall... again, find another firewall and hope that ZoneLabs pull themselves together, for the sake of internetsecurity :robotsad:

    Well, I made a final try, as I had nothing really to loose. It seems to work after 2 restarts. But it should not be that kind of solution a normal user should have to make, just to get the program to work properly

    What I did is this:
    1. <LI>Installed ZoneAlarm 6.5.722 as usual and let it reboot normally (with the unsatisfying result)</LI><LI>Click Start -&gt; Run -&gt; type REGEDIT (XP) or REGEDT32 (2000), and click OK. - Navigate to the main Zone Labs registry key atHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Zone Labs - Right-click on that key and select Permissions. Make sure that SYSTEM account, and the account you are trying to uninstall with, show that they have FULL and READ permissions, and SPECIAL is not checked. Nothing should be checked in the right column for Deny. Closed Regedit.</LI><LI>Opened Explorer and found WINDOWS\Systen32\ZonLabs - rightclick the folder ZoneLabs, click Permissions and then I gave all the "persons" Full control, just to be sure.</LI><LI>Then found Program Files\ZoneAlarm and roghtclick the folder ZoneAlarm and did as above.</LI><LI>Rebooted in to Safe mode (by Start -&gt; Run -&gt; type msconfig and click OK. In BOOT.INI section, a tick in /Safeboot)</LI>
      1. <LI>Deleted vsconfig.xmlfrom windows\System32</LI><LI>DeletedBACKUP.RDB and IAMDB.RDB from WINDOWS\Internet Logs</LI><LI>Used msconfig again to remove the tick from /Safeboot and then rebooted.</LI>
      <LI>When returning to the Desktop, ZoneAlarm continued with the Tutorial option and the icon was in the systray, as expected.</LI>

    I configured ZA to my needs, placed a few programs to be allowed access and tried a couple more, that I knew would ask - and wee ZA popped up with the usual allert. I rebooted again, just to see if it still worked and so far it does. But what a mess! ZoneLabs better make it work better, or they will loose a lot of users, especially those who dare not to fiddle around in their system.
