    Default Can't shut zone alarm off

    I have deleted everything I can find that was associated with zone alarm. The win xp security center
    where you can turn on/off the m.s default firewall has an indicator that says that zone alarm is on. I suppose true vector is somehow still active even thou I have deleted registry entries,files etc. Everything I can find on
    any website including this one. I only have norton orporate antivirus running.
    Nothing else. Anyone got any ideas

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    If you are trying to un-install ZA Free - try this...click here &gt; http://forums.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/...message.id=103<hr>or &gt; http://forums.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/...ssage.id=77605<hr>or &gt; http://www2.nohold.net/noHoldCust542...tallNonNT.html<hr>One of the 'important factors' is
    &gt; on your current ZA &gt; go to &quot;Overview&quot; &gt; Preferences &gt; General - &quot;uncheck the box for&quot; = 'Load ZoneAlarm at startup' &gt; click once, wait - it may take a few
    seconds for it to register, but it will clear the box.[*]
    Please restart/ reboot. This will help prevent 'true vector issues' for upgrades/ installs and un-installs.<hr>Before you leave would you mind deleting two of your posts...[*]http://forums.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/...d=51563#M51563

    I have deleted enough of the program files that zone alarm appears no where in the system that I can find.
    Not in the system tray in the lower right hand corner. Not in &quot;start&quot; &quot; all programs&quot; or in system 32
    Or in the registry that I can find. I did a &quot;search' and came up zilch. Still the security center declares that zone alarm is active. I have rebooted the system but no change.

    During your un-install attempt did you &quot;go to &quot;Overview&quot; &gt; Preferences &gt; General - &quot;uncheck the box for&quot; = 'Load ZoneAlarm at startup' ?

    No, It did'nt. I just did a regular uninstall like on most programs. I had no idea there was any need to do anything different. So now that I'm messed up, any way to fix this short of &quot;format c:\&quot;
    Been there ,dun that guess once more won't kill me. It is a cure all. It mighta been less time consuming
    than trying to fix what I got now. It all started when I updated zone alarm and then tryed to reboot
    All the system would do is continuously try to load windows , then reboot to the p o s t screen.
    So I figured, delete the zone alarm and try to reboot with out it.
