Thread: ZASS 7.0 or 7.1?

    Default ZASS 7.0 or 7.1?

    I keep older versions of my software on my HD so I can go back if something doesn't work with a new release, like it is happening with ZASS v8.0.

    I still have versions 7.1.248 and 7.1.254 but neither of them would install because of TrueVector problems during installation. I thought these 7.1 versions were made specifically for Windows Vista, but they seem to be no longer available for download on the ZA site. What versions are these?

    Can version 7.0.483 be used with Vista and XP?

    2.) All 7.1.xxx Files were ONLY for Vista..

    First, thank you for the fast answer. At least we have some support in this Forum, as opposed to ZA Tech Support.

    I forgot to write that I would like to downgrade from 8 to 7 because ZASS 8 freezes Windows Update so that I can't keep my system updated. The only suggestion in the Forum about how to try to resolve that was written somewhere by you (adjust the access rights of various programs in ZA) but it didn't help (actually ZA boasts during installation that it is pre-configured, so it certainly should take into account the needs of Windows Update). WU only works when ZA 8 is completely uninstalled.

    I saw the recommendation from the Forum moderator that we should downgrade from 8 to 7 until the problems with 8 were solved. That's what I want to do. Why did the moderator make no distinction/comment about the need to use either 70 or 71, depending on which Windows version we are using?

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Thank you for your Feedback..Here is the Direct Download Link to Previous Versions of ZASS for Vista..http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/fre...ory_vista.htmlI would Recomend 7.1.254.0007.1.254.000 was released to the public on April 22, 2008. For changes in this version, click here. To download this version, click here.

    Try a clean unistall of the program then reinstall the program.....

    1.) Download a Current Copy of Zone Alarm Security Suite from
    ZA website in the release history section.

    http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/fre...ory_vista.html


    2.) Go into ZA Overview/Preferences and Un-Check "Load Zone Alarm on Startup"
    3.) Reboot Computer to Remove Zone Alarm drivers from Memory..
    4.) Temporarily shut down any other AV/AS Security programs that May Conflict with ZA Install

    5..) Click on Start -&gt; Programs -&gt; Zone Labs
    RIGHT-click on Uninstall Zone Labs Security, then select Properties.
    Under Target you will see the following line (the actual drive may be different on your system):
    "C:\Program Files\Zone Labs\ZoneAlarm\zauninstexe"
    Change it to:
    "C:\Program Files\Zone Labs\ZoneAlarm\zauninst.exe" (add a space and then the /clean)
    Click OK to save the new command line.
    Click on Start -&gt; Programs -&gt; Zone Labs -&gt; Uninstall Zone Labs Security
    Click OK to run the uninstaller, and OK any security alerts that pop up.
    say "Yes when being prompted for the removal of all files and allow TrueVector to shut down.

    Now Start again in the Safe mode and delete these files in the Windows Directory:

    WINDOWS\ Internet Logs

    Using something like this Freeware CCleaner &lt;--- http://www.ccleaner.com/download/bui...wnloading-slim
    , will help do the cleanup as well on both the Hard drive and the Registry .


    Now Re-install the ZASS program now. accept the Default settings, and choose the TRUSTED ZONE and not the INTERNET ZONE..Reboot..NOTE: Make sure all of the following Programs have Trusted and Internet access (2 Green Check Marks):a.)
