    Did not answer the question posted.
    Please read the question rather than simply posting what I already read in several threads.

    My version claims to be up to date.
    Since I am not foolish enough to automatically get updates from Microsoft, I don't have the issue.
    I just want to be SURE I have an update before I get the new patch from Microsoft installed.

    For this fix to work, is it necessary to do a clean install or uninstall/ install?
    OR
    Is it sufficient to simply install this new .463 version of ZAISS
    over
    the ZAISS 7.0.470.000 version i already have installed?
    I'd much prefer the latter,
    as uninstall or clean install can be quite a pain....
    Thnaks in advance:

    Hi!if not mentioned otherwise you can safely install over the existing version.This is actually the default behaviour for ALL ZA updates.... and to avoid any problems just do to the following:1. Uncheck 'load ZA at startup' on you current ZA (Overview --&gt; preferences)2. Reboot the system3. Install the update (clean or upgrade)Cheers,Fax

    I am one who didn't install the MS update KB951748.
    Please confirm the correct order;
    1.
    I install Zone Alarm's fix for XP Pro, newest version 7.0.483
    2.
    I download MS Update KB951748

    When
    I download Zone Alarm's alarm I could do a clean install and start from scratch?
    I ask because this is ONE fix and it would be nice to clean my Zone Alarm house.
    Thank you Zone Alarm crew for your fastest fix ever.

    I just have to say a big thank you for the fast turn around on this fix. I moved to ZA some years ago because my other supplier never responded to anything. Thanks team ZA.
