    Default Successful installation

    Hey Guys

    Like most everyone else here, I've been a long-time user and supporter of ZA. I bought ZAPro in 2001 and have used the same old version since then on two consecutive new PCs. I just bought a new Dell XPS410 with XP and decided it was time to upgrade Zone Alarm so I downloaded the latest version of Pro. Again, like most everyone else upgrading from earlier versions, I had problems getting it installed...until I read the posts here. Thanks for all the help.

    I just wanted to say, the trick is definitely in doing a thorough UNinstall - get rid of every possible reference to anything related to the previous install and it's a piece o' cake. Take advantage of the posts here that have listed the DLLs and registry keys and take the time to delete them. Set a restore point before you begin and it's easy to get back to where you started if need be. I went one better and made a fresh disk image (Acronis) so I'd have some options, but after cleaning out the old stuff, I didn't need either one.

    I really like the new format. Quite a bit different than my old version 2, but the familiar stuff is still there under the customize buttons. ZoneAlarm still rawks.

    Best,
    Allan

    Hi Unique,

    Thank you very much Unique for taking the time to report the good experience and POSITIVE FEEDBACK on ZONE ALARM!

    Your quote, "I just wanted to say, the trick is definitely in doing a thorough UNinstall - get rid of every possible reference to anything related to the previous install and it's a piece o' cake.

    YES, YOU are very correct and I have followed that procedure from day 1 when I installed ZA over 3+ years now and never ever had a problem with that procedure. But, of course others will not agree with you or I, but that is their choice on how they want to install ZA and I WILL NOT argue with anyone of them. But You and I know how to do it right without any type of issues and that is all that matters.

    Once again Thank You Very Much Unique for posting back and Good Luck!

    EXCELLENT POST Unique and that deserves a GOLD STAR.
