I've ran ZoneAlarm on a variety of OS's over the years without problems, and until the last week or so this had been the same on Vista.
But ever since updating to the latest build of ZA, I am having nothing but problems! It will work fine for a day or 2 after installation, then I will log on and have no net access.
Now it's getting so severe that Windows will crash out at the login screen after I input my password! (though once getting rif of ZA, this problem does not occur - also oddly, although I am assuming it is a BSOD error, I don't get a BSOD, just sits there on a black screen)
I tried re-installing ZA yesterday and it worked fine - this morning? I boot up and the same problems happen again! I've also checked in my event log and I have this nice surprise:

No wonder nothing is working. I tried the "complete removal" of ZA as mentioned in other threads, and thought this had cracked it but today I am having no end of problems, so it's Windows Firewall for now unless someone can offer some suggestions on this then I'll have to find another firewall, which isn't ideal because I've used ZA for years and because it's never changed really, I'm very used to it.
Any info would be great.
Thanks
