    First of all, how about being more specific about your issues. What version of ZA do you have installed, what type of OS (Operating System) Windows XP, 2000,etc.?? Give us the info and hopefully we will be able to help you with your issues.

    That DOES NOT HELP! Do you have ZA Pro, Security Suite, etc?? Or do you have the FREE version of Zone Alarm??

    Do you know how to get to the event viewer in XP? If so look in there and see if there are any crashes, or warnings. Let us know what they are.

    Which antivirus are you using?

    I am assuming (by your own lack of co-operation) that the ZAFree is the latest version 7.x?

    I would suggest that a " /clean" uninstall be perfromed and a step down to the ZAFree 6.5 could solve your problems. We really don't know since all we know is you have a XP OS and a ZA.

    The issue of remmants of previous drivers/keys from other security previously installed could be the problem. Any remmants of trials or possible antispy or even the presently used antivirus could be the issue.

    Then there is the possibility of actual hardware failure. This is one of the most commonest cause of the BSOD. Since the codes has not been made known to us, then it is hard to determine if the hardware (bad RAM cards, outdated BIOS, bad HDD, incorrect graphics drivers, etc) is at fault or the operating system is in error. The vsdatant driver is stable and it would take something out or out to make it go wrong with a BSOD.

    Anyways since you wish to remain secretive, I would suggest a " /clean" uninstall and install the ZAFree 6.5 instead. Plus running a file/registry cleaner a few times in between the uninstall and the re-install of the ZA.

    Like this:

    Click on Start -> Programs -> Zone Labs
    RIGHT-click on Uninstall Zone Labs Security, then select Properties
    Under Target you will see the following line (the actual drive may be different on your system):

    "C:\Program Files\Zone Labs\ZoneAlarm\zauninstexe"
    Change it to:

    "C:\Program Files\Zone Labs\ZoneAlarm\zauninst.exe" /clean

    (add a space and then the /clean
    Click OK to save the new command line.


    Open the ZA and disable the "Load Zone Alarm at startup" found in the Preferences of the Overview. Then reboot.


    Click on Start -> Programs -> Zone Labs -> Uninstall Zone Labs Security
    Click OK to run the uninstaller, and OK any security alerts that pop up.
    say "Yes when being prompted for the removal of all files and allow TrueVector to shut down.
    Reboot
    After rebooting, check for the following folders, and delete them if you find them:

    "Internet Logs" (under your Windows Folder)

    "Zone Labs" (under your Program Files folder)

    "Zonelabs" (under your Windows System32 folder)
    Empty your recycle bin
    Reboot

    Now run the freeware CCleaner ..

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/CCleaner_S...ish_d4191.html

    Run it after the reboot and run it in the Safe Mode and run it again in the Normal Mode. Be sure to use the Issues feature.


    Then install the ZAFree 6.5.737.000. Download from here>

    http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/fre...737_000_en.exe

    Install and see if this solution works for you.
