    Default Upgrading a laptop to Windows 7: what to do with ZASS ?

    Hi,

    I will upgrade from Windows Vista Business to Widows 7 with my Sony Vaio TX5XN laptop.

    Sony request that I do an upgrade, NOT a clean install to avoid loosing all preinstalled Sony programs (these are not downloadable) and issues with drivers (as several Vista drivers musts remain in place as the corresponding drivers may not be available in the Windows 7 installation disk) .

    What should I do with my current installation of ZoneAlarm (Security Suite) ? Should I

    - completely uninstall ZA (with the cpes removal tool), upgrade to Windows 7 and reinstall my ZA ? If doing so and in order not to loose my current ZA configuration, can I make a backup before uninstalling ZA and then make a restore after upgrading to Win7 and reinstalling ZA ?

    OR

    - can I simply upgrade with ZA running ?

    Hi!
    the best is to remove it. With the removal tool or Vista uninstall a program. Yes backup.... restore after.

    Thank you. I'll try and let you know. In the meantime, I have installed ZASS on anew computer with Win7 (Home premium) and the installation worked flawlessly. This may not be "big news" but it is always nice to see that the new ZASS is all right with Win7 http://forums.zonealarm.com/images/icons/icon7.gif.

    Are you able to setup/join a Homegroup?
    ZoneAlarm interferes with Windows 7's Homegroup functionality by crippling Teredo.
    I have reported this problem to Tech Support and so far they are unable to provide an explanation.
    So is ZAX compatible with Windows 7? Not yet.

    If you are not able to solved your problem and want to help ZA then you could try the latest ZA Extreme or Antivirus beta and feedback directly to ZA developers. www.zonealarm.com/beta
