    Default ZoneAlarm Security Suite Service Agent Question

    I am running ZASS version 7.0.337.000 with Windows XP SP2 and have recently got a dialogue window pop-up from ZASS alerting me to an important Security Update... it says the following:

    ZoneAlarm Security Suite Service Agent

    An Important Security Update is available. ZoneAlarm is also now available for Windows Vista. Do you want to get the update now (recommended)?

    .. since I have Windows XP SP2, is it safe for me to go ahead and update? I just wanted to post here and make sure that this update is not a "Vista-Only" update, and that it indeed is for XP SP2.

    Thanks for the help.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Default Re: ZoneAlarm Security Suite Service Agent Question to the Zone Alarm User Forum..The Update Alert is telling you that there is a Very Important ZASS Update available..With This New ZA Update, I would recommend the following..1.) Download the Update and save it to your desktop of Holding Directory..2.) Go into ZA Overview/Preferences and Un-Check "Load ZASS.... on Startup" and Reboot your Computer to Unload TrueVector and vsmon.exe If You have any other 3rd Party Security Programs installed, Turn them off, as they may Conflict with the New ZA Install..3.) Click on the New Update Installer file (I selected Upgrade, but you can do a Clean Install)4.) Accept the default Setting durring the Install and Allow SmartDefense..5.) Reboot and enjoy the New Install..<TABLE cellSpacing=2 cellPadding=2 width=810 border=0><TBODY><TR><TD class=body width=802><P class=headredbig>ZoneAlarm
