Well, this has been an on going process.
I just restored my laptop two day's ago, uninstalled Acer eLock and eData Security Mgmnt.
I then downloaded and installed the latest version of ZoneAlarm Free,
everything went well, that was yesterday.
This morning, I tried booting but
it kept blue screen-ing (at the welcome screen) with with a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. I got this twice, booted into safe mode, disabled ZA from startup, tried booting again, got another blue screen, different error, but debugging revealed same problem. Booted into safe mode, uninstalled ZA, rebooted, and here I am.
I have three memory dumps that can be uploaded if needed.
I just can't understand why it has worked in the past, I've been able to get back up and running, and then out of the blue (no pun intended) this happens.I would really love to keep ZoneAlarm as my firewall, I will (and have) greatly appreciate any help.
I'm going to clean my system of anything ZA and eLock
related and will try another install.
Edit- I'm back, I booted into safe mode and deleted the temp files, reg entries, superfetch etc.. from the uninstall guide. I rebooted, downloaded ZA, installed, it rebooted, intialized, and everything worked, I manually rebooted, and when it came back to the welcome screen it blue screened with DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I can upload this memory dump as well.
