on windows xp:
updated zonealarm = ok, it does not start automatic however. when I start it manually it appears in the systemtray but vanishes as soon as i move my mouse over it.
other security software: only microsoft essentials which i turned off to test.
process explorer shows that vsmon.exe IS running (C:\WINDOWS\system32\ZoneLabs\vsmon.exe -service)
I tried killing other processes one by one leaving only the core windows processes ... no to avail. event viewer shows not much (nothing relevent actually).
there is not much special installed on this laptop. It's really strange.
so i ran http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...cpes_clean.exe, reboot, last part of cleaner, new fresh download, install, config, did not choose
the toolbar (but I notice it still copies it)
and... it seems to work
