    See if this will fix the problem for you. Go into the start menu locate the zonelabs entry and right click on the uninstaller and select properties. Now in the target box you must add a space and then /clean to the end so that it looks something like this "C:\Program Files\Zone Labs\ZoneAlarm\zauninst.exe" /clean click apply and then OK. Next open ZA and turn off the load on boot option, then reboot and then run the uninstaller.This should get rid of all of ZoneAlarm. Now go to your windows temp folder and delete everything. Find the folder named Internet logs and delete it then empty your recycle bin. Now download and install a fresh ZA from the Zone Labs website.

    But that copy of ZoneAlarm was freshly Downloaded Yesterday from the ZoneAlarm Website... How does that make any difference... Also another error shows up that even Explorer.exe Does Not run because of ZoneAlarm...

    Reasonable question. Sometimes the download or the installation itself could get corrupt and undoing everything then going with a fresh start will sometimes fix the problem. Have you ever had something that didn't work so you took it apart, put it back together, didn't change a thing, and then it worked? Well, that's the theory here.

    If you want, you can also look in your Event Viewer and see what was going on just before the True Vector error occurred. I just suggested the easiest way to try to fix the problem to start.
