    Default Unable to install, unable to unistall

    Trying to install (upgrade) to ZoneAlarm 7.0.408 hangs. After asking about installation method (upgrade or clean install), it just hangs. In task manager I see the process running, and there's also a related process named GLBxx.tmp (xx changes) using 99 % of the cpu time. Tried both upgrade and clean installation.

    Tried also uninstalling, but had no luck. The message is: Uninstall failure. The uninstaller cannot locate resources needed to uninstall.

    Could this be related to Kaspersky anti virus since the upgrade has worked great prior to installing Kaspersky?


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

    Vieraissa - some recent changes in the new version ZA 7 x Free version XP/2000
    -"only", which we ourselves slowly discovered - There is a ZA Security Suite
    hidden underneath the ZA 7x Free. Which the 'phantom' non-functioning Kaspersky av in there (may ?
    conflict with your
    anti-virus plus other functions)

    Even in a 'dormant state' Kaspersky drivers and files, are 'intrusive/indomitable' with other anti-virus - [even with another &quot;free standing Kaspersky av&quot; = this is an actual recent post - I just answered {with Fax, too} ] -<hr>1st
    Option - Firstuninstall/delete ZA 7 x
    Free and then install the old version 6.5.737 ZA Free
    of Aug. 31, 2006 - here is the link -
    . -to the Release History page -
    go to 6.5 Branch - and find 6.5.737.000 - to download this version, if successful; your
    system will be working again} - [ later, you may get a ZA program update box - you may not want to automatically update that - this would be an update to the new ZA 7 x Free, again,
    - not again - tell it to remind you in 60 days- repeat and rinse, wait until further developments]. { In &quot;Overview&quot; &gt; 'Preferences' &gt; 'Check for Updates'
    &gt; you could put on &quot;Manually&quot; instead of Automatically }.<hr>2nd

    Option- others who wish to upgrade to ZA 7x, on a budget - an alternative to rolling back or staying with ZA 6.5 Free - I would suggest going up a level in security by getting ZoneAlarm Anti-Spyware 7.0.337 - at about 14.2 MB it's just a bit more than ZA 6.5 Free plus you get a &quot;real improvement in firewall protection&quot; and a &quot;top rated anti-spyware&quot; -
    for $19.95 for one year of updates -;lid=ho_zaas
    . This ZA product has the Operating System Firewall (OS Firewall) which is more advanced than the simple firewall in ZA free versions; in all of the paid versions of ZA products - this the heart of ZA protection - see comparison chart - click left tabs for more info. -
    . This a simple to use, less complicated ZA firewall product than ZA suite. I use it myself. With this version, you can use any brand of anti-virus you choose. No worries, no complications. According, to some recent test/reviews - it top rates at #1 or Editor's Choice - see Cnet test/review dated March 19, 2007 - .<hr>3rd
    Option - if you can 'refund' your free standing Kaspersky anti-virus,
    after un-installing - you can install ZA Anti-virus =
    get better/upgraded ZA
    firewall + Kaspersky av - what a coincidence.
    .<hr><hr>As for your stuck pc, from the known - un-install your free standing Kaspersky av and then un-install your present ZA Free firewall -
    . You may need to go to Kaspersky website to get a special Kaspersky remover/un-installer if necessary.<hr>Then you will have to decide on of the three options I have prescribed or go for another option/path of your choice. Whatever you choose, I would suggest the download of the firewall first, restart/or reboot get it up and running (and then install anti-virus - unless you choose Option #3)<hr>NaiveMelody NYC 10-31-07 - The Magnificent Seven - The Clash

    Thanx for a quick response, SlyFox!

    Just had some time to try the suggestions mentioned in the above link.
    No luck at all.

    There was 3 options:
    1) Uninstall ZA7x free.
    -&gt; It will not uninstall. Complaining about missing components.

    2) Staying with 6.5.737
    I downloaded (several times with Firefox and IE) the version 6.5.737 but it does not install.
    -&gt; Complains about it's not a win32 setup file.

    3) Buying ZA Anti-virus
    I just paid Kaspersky for 3 years, so I do not see this as an option.
