    Default ZA Shut Down

    I cannot get ZA to work. It says it is shut down. Does anyone else have that problem? I have been with ZA for several years and this is the first time this has happened.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    to the Zone Alarm User Forum..The simplest procedure is to:The New ZAFree 7.0.473.000 Requires a Minimum of Win WP with Service Pack 2 or SP3, and may not install if XP has not been Upgraded to SP2..1.)Download the ZAFree 7.0.483installerpreferably with IE7 and no Download Manager/accelerator like Get-Right) (Click the Red Download Now Button)ZAFreefor WinXP SP2 http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/fre...seHistory.html (zlsSetup_70_483_000_en.exe 44.6MB)2.) Please note that ZAFree does not always play nice with many security tools. For example, ad-aware, Ad-watch, AVG 8, spybotS&amp;D, Spyware Doctor, Spysweeper. For sure it cannot be installed if you have still another Antivirus software or Firewall (other than Windows Firewall) installed or active.

    To troubleshoot ZAFree issues it is highly recommendedthat youremove all the above and install them back on (if you really need to) after your ZAFreeis installed and configured and runningas it should. If you have not installed any of the above ensure that NO left overs areon the system (they can conflict with the ZA install).
    You must go into ZA Overview/Preferences and UN-Check "Load ZoneAlarm Free on Startup"3. Reboot the Computer. 4. Install the new ZA update (clean or upgrade) and Accept the default Setting, Auto-Learn Mode and Choose Trusted Zone, not Internet Zone..

    Thanks for the reply and the good info.I do use AVG and AdAware and have for years alongside ZA. I am wondering why this just now started. I also use SpyBot.I have Sp2.I get a msg that I need to uninstall Computer Associates Antivirus before I can update ZA, but I uninstalled that last year and I cannot find any traces of it now. Is there another way I can get find out if it's still on here? Again...thanks for the reply.

Completely uninstall one before installing another. Use the vendor's uninstall utility or if not available, use the Windows XP add/remove software tool in the control panel. It seems that Spyware Doctor's Process Guard does not play nice with ZA. There is a known issue that PC Tools is investigating where the Spyware Doctor causes excess CPU usage for vsmon.exe. This was really never a big deal for me, but apparently with the newest ZA update, this conflict has risen to a new level. If I disable Process Guard then ZA functions normally.

    George, do u have any idea how I can remove Computer Associates Antivirus? ZA won't install the update until I uninstall CAA. I can't find it anywhere on
    my computer
    thru a search, add remove programs, or in my list of programs. I went to the CAA website and asked them but they say they don't have me listed as one of their users. Getting frustrated here. Now why won't ZA fix this so we don't all have to jump thru hoops just to update? Here I am naked (so to speak) with no av, firewall, or anti spyware installed.

    Ok, I found the folder/file containing the CA Antivirus file. It was listed
    in Yahoo. Shall I delete that folder or only the file or will I do damage if I do that? This is driving me batty! I have lost sight of my goal now.

    Sorry, I am just getting frustrated and worried that I will do the wrong thing and make things worse on my pc. Thanks for putting up with me and helping. Thanks for the links. BTW...CA says they don't show me on their list so I had to send them the license key.Whew.
