I wonder, is this why?
ZoneAlarm is still investigating and collecting data on the Slow shutdown, slow coming out of Standby and slow logging off user issue. The automatic update for 8.0 was turned off on Monday.
We recommend that users uninstall 8.0 and reinstall 7.
When a improved version is ready the automatic update notification will let you know in the client.
Best regards,ZoneAlarm
Because I have downloaded ZA V8 instalation program numerous times and gone through the process of clearing any evidence of it on the pc?I have ZA V8 on my PC but it will not install on my wife's PC.
Also, whenever I updated or ZA did an auto update, I had to set up the network again as it reset the network and our PC's couldnt see each other or interact in any way.My PC (with ZA V8) can see my wife's but my wife's (with ZA V7) cant access mine
Were both running XP Pro, AVG, Spyware TerminatorI have Peerguardian but it's configured to allow ZA
