So I installed ZoneAlarm Extreme Security on 9/14/09. I didn't have any problems and had been running ZA Internet Security prior to the change. On 10/7 I started getting an error with True Vector Internet Monitor shutting down and asking to restart it. Doing so appears to do nothing and I get a similar prompt in about 15 seconds.
I have followed the steps in a similar post:
1.) Ran a deep scan from safe mode, came back clear.
2.) Ran MalwareByte's and came back clear.
3.) Ran the super spyware download and came back clear.
4.) Uninstalled using the ZA remover linked and did all manual steps as well.
5.) Reinstalled ZA Extreme Security and problem returned. Once the problem happens I lose the ability to access the internet with IE or Mozilla, even after shutting down ZA.
I guess it is possible that I have some virus that is not picked up by any of the up to date scans I did, but it seems like a deeper issue. I am unsure of where to go after the removal and reinstall didn't work.

Tried another uninstall and can't get it to update definitions either and antivirus / spyware just randomly shutting off and coming back on.
