Hi everyone,
I recieved notification of an update for zone alarm and I was also offered a free system check which I thought I would try. Now I can't get ZA to open. The following message appears "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000142). Click OK to terminate the application". Hotmail is now performing erratically as well. I have deleted zone alarm but my system is now very slow. Any suggestions?

Operating System:Windows XP Pro
Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
