I wanted to uninstall Zone-Alarm and proceeded the usual way. It recommended shutdown and restart. So I agreed. After that nothing works any more. It won't show the password screen. It starts, checks harddisk and then shows windows-symbol. After that blank black screen and endless calculating. After 15 minutes I restarted and tried several times recovery mode (that wanted some commands that I don't know about, so i disrupted) and secured mode - all end in a black screen with one blinking bar on the upper left. Same with "start last known functioning version".
System: Windows XP Professional, Acre 220 Travelmate with 750 mb Ram. It was running smoothly before the de-installation of Zone-Alarm - with one exception. Tuneup-Utilities showed a message, that zone-alarm would not be active though it was running. therefore I downloaded a new version of zone-alarm with the intention of installing it after uninstalling the old version. Now everything is blank screen - no nice.
What to do?
