    Default Latest working version?

    I tried posting yesterday, but seems it didn't post.
    I had tried using the 8.0.015 version, and it slagged my laptop. It took a programmer to even get it to boot in Safe Mode, and then had to dump all my files to a portable drive, and then reformat the laptop HD. Then serveral days of re-installing programs. Needless to say, I had to go back to version 7.0.483. Now I been getting new version notices, and want to know, IS 8.0.059 safe to use?
    I do not want to have to repeat the whole week long process again if it trashes my harddrive. Will 8.0.059 work, and what do I need to know to install it?
    BTW, I'm running Windows XP Home on a Compaq Presario F730US.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Here is my Suggestion..1.) clean up your HD and Make sure it is Clean of all Malware..2.) Make a Full Boot drive Backup (just to be on the safe Side..)If your getting a ZoneAlarm notice of a new 8.0.059.000 Update, I would Download it and save it to your hard drive..3.)

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

    - 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 <--- http://www.ccleaner.com/download/bui...wnloading-slim
    , will help do the cleanup as well on both the Hard drive and the Registry .


    install the ZASS program now. Accept the Default Settings, Choose Trusted Zone not Internet Zone in the Firewall Zones area..Manually update the AV/As..Good Luck..--------------------------------------------------------
