    Default 2 ZoneAlarm Firewall files in registry won't delete

    I'm trying to install Win 7. I don't have any part of Zone Alarm installed. Win 7 won't install until it's removed. Every bit of the program is removed except for these two under 2 Legacy Vsdatants, and it won't allow me to delete them. How can I remove them in order to install Win 7? Other than those two I'm completely clean of ZA.

    Do you think installing the clean free just firewall ZA and removing it might help remove these additions in the registry?

    Thanks. I appreciate any help. Bit of a waste buying Win 7 if I can't use it.

    I installed ZA, uninstalled it, cleaned out the registry again, and I still have those entries that I can't delete. There are three of them. I was going to put a pic here, but I don't see where I can do it.

    Alocasia I've found a way that works.

    Using Regedit locate the relevant LEGACY_DRIVER and right click. In the Permissions for LEGACY_DRIVER Window click the Advanced button. From the new window that opens click the Owner Tab and Select "administrators" under the "Change Owner To" Heading.
    Tick the box that says 'Replace Owner on SubContainers and objects' and then click apply.

    Close that window. In the Permissions for LEGACY_DRIVER window give Everyone, Owner Rights and System in the Group or user names - Full Control. Click apply/okay.

    You can now right click and delete the Registry Entry for LEGACY_DRIVER.

    There is probably a better way but it's the only one that now works for me.

    You may notice the manual uninstall procedure does not mention the entry in the Run key. Is there some reason for that being omitted. I found it during the manual uninstall after I had run the normal uninstall.
