I have just bought a Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium as OS.
First thing (after a full Windows Update) has been to remove McAfee IS. Second thing has been (trying) installing ZoneAlarm Free (and yes, I have disabled Windows Firewall first...)
Before the end of the installation I got a BSOD. Rebooted in Safe Mode, uninstalled ZoneAlarm, rebooted again and tried to install ZoneAlarm for the second time. Same thing. A BSOD just before to get the request of rebooting for finish the installation. Rebotted again in Safe Mode and uninstalled ZA for the second time. Now I'm using (ouch!) the Windows Firewall.
I can't know the license key because I didn't had the chance to see ZoneAlarm running on my laptop.. Please, could you be so kind to give me some indication about how solve this extremely annoying issue? I do not want using any other firewall than ZoneAlarm.
Thanks in advance
OS: WinVista HP
ZA FREE: 7.1 (Vista)
True Vector Version: 7.1.078.000
Antivirus: AVG Anti Malaware 7.5.484
