    You might first want to update your root certificates. Here is a link to the Verisign site .

    Before anything else, I would suggest checking
    your computer date/time, since if the year has changed to prior to the certificate date, it apparently will cause the certificates to appear to be expired. Simply resetting the date/time and rebooting solved
    my problem after I spent many hours chasing the problem.

    Apparently a new, related issue: the root certificates required to >start ZA components (free version 6.1.737.000) expired today - 16 July, 2009. So now I have to set my system clock in the past for zone alarm to function. Upleasant twist: About 10 minutes after ZA fails to start, it redirects all http access to, a ZA website. This effectively kills all internet access. I understand why they use root certificates to install, but to take this kind of action against a running system is causing me to seriously rethink using any ZA product in future.

    I ran into this also today. The error message is quite confusing and googling suggests a farely complex solution with many steps. To solve it I rolled back my system date to before July 16th 2009 so ZoneAlarm could start and I regained internet access. I then downloaded the current ZoneAlarm and installed it after having uninstalled the old one. I then set the date back to the correct date.
