I was referred to ZoneAlarm forums, because I was told this is a ZoneAlarm issue. Since installing the standalone ZoneAlarm version 7.0.337, I've noticed that when running msconfig and trying to change the startup programs, an error message comes up saying "access denied...must be logged in as administrator". However, my only account is an administrator account. Also, in Safe Mode I attempted to do the same thing from both the Adminstrator and Owner/Adminstrator modes and the same thing happens.

I was told to try to uninstall ZoneAlarm as a test to see if that was the problem, but when I did, the problem remained. It was suggested to me that not all the ZoneAlarm components were removed, so the test wasn't a good one.

Is there a way to work-around this problem, since I really want to keep my ZoneAlarm product?

Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
