    Default Vista - Internet Security Suite install Problem

    Hello,

    I am currently stuck and don't seem to be able to go backward or forwards
    I downloaded what I thought was ver 7.1 (which should be Vista compatible) however, the link I downloaded from turned out to be ver 7.0x.
    I tired to install this (I did not know there was a Vista issue at the time) it partially installed with some parts failing
    I tired to un-install - it won't
    I downloaded ver 7.1 - and tried to install which failed
    I tried to uninstall - it won't
    I know get a constant error "TrueVector service has stopped working"
    The ZoneAlarms console will not load
    Is there a Manual Remove process through Regedit I can follow - then start again with ver 7.1

    Thanks

    Operating System:Windows Vista Home Premium
    Software Version:7.1 (Vista)
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Hi,Welcome to the Forum!1.) PLEASE go to the following threads and download your version of Zone Alarm that you want to installed on your computer. PLEASE download it on your DESKTOP, BUT DO NOT INSTALL IT, until you completely followed the instructions BELOW.

    ZoneAlarm (FREE)

    http://www.zonelabs.com/zadownload

    ZoneAlarm with Antivirus

    http://www.zonelabs.com/zaavdownload

    ZoneAlarm Pro

    http://www.zonelabs.com/zapdownload

    ZoneAlarm Security Suite

    http://www.zonelabs.com/zasuitedownload

    2.) Once you have downloaded your version of Zone Alarm to your Desktop.

    3,) DISCONNECT FROM THE INTERNET. If you use Cable or DSL Modem, PLEASE DISCONNECT IT. ALSO, ANY OTHER PROGRAMS, THIS INCLUDES THE WINDOWS FIREWALL, EXCEPT YOUR BASIC PROGRAMS TO RUN WINDOWS. To find out what APPLICATIONS ARE RUNNING, PLEASE GO TO YOUR TASK MANAGER. Control + Alt+ Delete. It should bring you to your Task Mgr. Look for Applications, make sure there are NO APPLICATIONS RUNNING. If they are, use the END TASK BUTTON.

    To remove ZoneAlarm completely from your computer in case normal uninstall can t be run or doesn t run properly, do the following:

    * Right click the ZoneAlarm systray icon and click Restore ZoneAlarm Control Center.

    Go to Overview > Preferences and uncheck Load ZoneAlarm at startup.

    Close Control Center, right click the icon again and then click Shutdown ZoneAlarm.

    Note: If you're unable to carry out this step because the icon is missing, you can skip it and proceed with the next steps, but in this case do them all in safe mode!

    * REBOOT

    * Go to Start > Programs > ZoneLabs and click Uninstall, or uninstall ZA using Control Panel > Software > Add/Remove Programs.

    If a security check appears, click Yes and continue the uninstall procedure.

    * REBOOT

    * Make sure hidden files and folders are shown. To do so open Windows Explorer. Depending on your OS click Tools or View and then Folder Options > View.

    Choose Show hidden files and folders, uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Windows 2000/XP/2003 only) and click OK.

    * Next go to Start > Search > Files and Folders. Make sure the location box is set to search your Local Hard Drive (usually C:\ ) or All Local Drives. Also make

    sure the Advanced Search Options are set to search subfolders and hidden files. Now copy the entire line below, paste it into the search box and click Search Now.

    Zonelabs; "zone labs"; "Internet logs"; vsconfig.xml; vsdata.dll; vsdata95.vxd; vsdatant.sys; vsmon.*; vsmonapi.dll; vsnetutils.dll;vspubapi.dll; zaplus.*; zapro.*; **bleep**.dat; zlparser.dll; zonealarm.exe; zoneband.dll; vsutil.dll; zlclient.*

    A list of files and folders belonging to ZoneAlarm will appear in the Search Results pane.

    Note: if you re using McAfee software be sure to check the vsutil.dll if found: right click the file and choose Properties. Verify it belongs to ZoneLabs.

    If it does not do not remove it. Now proceed by deleting all ZoneLabs files and folders that were found.

    * Empty the Recycle Bin.

    * Now remove all ZoneLabs keys that may be left in the Windows registry. To do this copy the lines below and paste them into Notepad.

    Save the file as zabegone.reg, double click it and allow for the registry changes to be made.

    REGEDIT4

    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ZAMailSafe]

    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Zone Labs]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Zone Labs]

    [-HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Zone Labs]

    * REBOOT

    ZoneAlarm will now be completely removed from your computer. If you wish to install a new copy of ZA, be sure to do so under an administrator account with full rights and permissions.

    4.) Now go back to your DESKTOP to where you have downloaded a FRESH COPY of ZONE ALARM AND INSTALL IT.

    5.) PLEASE LET ZONE ALARM configured your PROGRAM SETTINGS. WHY? There is a very good possibility that when you manually install the Program Settings, something DOES NOT get properly installed, therefore causing major problems with your installment of Zone Alarm. Later on if you decide you do not want a specific program in your Programs Control Panel, then remove it. If it is required, you will get alert about it allowing or disallowing it. That's your decision. I have always done this, never a problem by letting Zone Alarm configure my settings.

    6.) When everything is totally completed, PLEASE reboot your system and connect back on to the Internet, make sure all your other programs are activated this includes Zone Alarm and the ones you had disabled, especially your Cable or DSL Modems.

    Thank you for your time and have a nice day!

    Hopefully by chance you made a restore point prior to trying installingZA? If you did, PLEASE try to revert back when your computer was working correctly. PLEASE let me know what are the results, THANKS.

    Sorry, I don't. How about trying the feature, "Last Known Good Configuration"? If no go, you may have to reinstall your OS. Not fun!SlyFox
