Thread: Old Version Zonealarm

    Default Old Version Zonealarm

    I upgraded to zonealarm 8.* and it completely destroyed my machine. It takes up 100% CPU and does nothing. It's very upsetting, since I JUST paid for anther year subscription. I wanted to know if there is anyway I can download the newest 7.* version since that was the latest version I had before upgrading to 8.* and destroying my machine.

    I downloaded:

    Uninstaller will run and ask you to reboot.

    Download 7.0.483.000 and save the installer to your desktop. Then double click the installer file to install.

    And when I attempted to install that version, said my machine was NOT okay lol and wouldn't let me install. I than ran it in windows compatibility mode (XP SP2) and it ran. Then at 100% installed it crashed on me and I reboot, then when I start it says "enter your licence info" I than enter my key, and about 15 mins later it pops up saying the antivirus system is broken blah blah.

    So is there a new version I can download of the 7 series of zonealarm? Been using it for a year no problem, then I update and **bleep** hits the fan ^_^

    Thanks so much for the help!

    But I still get the following error when trying to install:

    Title: Incompatible OS Detected

    This Check Point product is not compatible with Windows Vista Operating System.

    The installation will stop now.


    I could run it in windows compatibility mode (XP SP 2). But the ZL doesn't run properly later on...

    Any ideas?

    I'm running windows Vista Ultimate SP1, the ZL version is: zaSuiteSetup_70_483_000_en

    Here is the Direct Download Link to Previous Versions of ZASS for Vista.. would Recomend was released to the public on April 22, 2008. For changes in this version, click here. To download this version, click here.

    Try a clean unistall of the program then reinstall the program.....

    1.) Download a Current Copy of Zone Alarm Security Suite from
    ZA website in the release history section.

    2.) Go into ZA Overview/Preferences and Un-Check "Load Zone Alarm on Startup"
    3.) Reboot Computer to Remove Zone Alarm drivers from Memory..
    4.) Temporarily shut down any other AV/AS Security programs that May Conflict with ZA Install

    5..) Click on Start -> Programs -> Zone Labs
    RIGHT-click on Uninstall Zone Labs Security, then select Properties.
    Under Target you will see the following line (the actual drive may be different on your system):
    "C:\Program Files\Zone Labs\ZoneAlarm\zauninstexe"
    Change it to:
    "C:\Program Files\Zone Labs\ZoneAlarm\zauninst.exe" (add a space and then the /clean)
    Click OK to save the new command line.
    Click on Start -> Programs -> Zone Labs -> Uninstall Zone Labs Security
    Click OK to run the uninstaller, and OK any security alerts that pop up.
    say "Yes when being prompted for the removal of all files and allow TrueVector to shut down.
    - Reboot

    Now Start again in the Safe mode and delete these files in the Windows Directory:

    WINDOWS\ Internet Logs

    Program Files\Zone Labs

    WINDOWS\system32\ Zonelabs

    Now Reboot

    Using something like this Freeware CCleaner <---
    , will help do the cleanup as well on both the Hard drive and the Registry .

    Now Re-install the ZASS program now. accept the Default settings, and choose the TRUSTED ZONE and not the INTERNET ZONE..Reboot..
