Yesterday I updated to 7.0.462.000 based on an update prompt and when it got 15% of the way through the update (transferring files) it locked up.
I could not uninstall it and nothing I tried to install it or an earlier version worked.
It kept giving me a message that True Vector was loaded and to use the System Tools to turn it off.
I did and still could not load any ZA onto my system.
After several hours of frustration I did a system rollback, uninstalled the version that was on my system but that did not work and then installed 7.0.337.000 and configured it.
What I want to know is of the newer releases that are available, what is the latest one that is not problematic?
Also, is there much reason to stay current with ZA Free releases?
Don't they all adequately serve as firewalls?
This is the second time I have lost a lot of time to something like this.
The previous time was when the first ZA Free came out that installed Mail Frontier on my system.
It caused OE to crash repeatedly and took quite a while to figure out how to turn it off.
As I recall Hoover came to my rescue.
What does one do?
Stay current or lag behind?
What is the latest
stable and trouble free release?
How does one make sure Mail Frontier is not loaded with a newer release?
Thanks in advance for your help!
