    Default Can't install windows 7 cause of ZoneAlarm!

    Hey!

    When I run the windows 7 setup it says I have to uninstall ZoneAlarm Before I can install windows 7. But I already have! When I go to the Control Panel>Uninstall a Program, there is no ZoneAlarm. When I search in the Start Meny, there is no ZoneAlarm. What can I do?

    Here is what worked for me..

    1.) run the Windows 7 Evaluation program and delete or upgrade any program that are listed as conflicts or incompatible..

    2.) before installing Windows 7, Delete all 3rd party Security program as they may have attached themselves to the old Windows NTKERNEL.DLL
    Zone Alarm does this and may conflict with the install of Windows 7,
    You may re-install Zone Alarm once Windows 7 is Installed..

    All versions of Zone Alarm older than Version 9.1 are NOT COMPATIBLE with Windows 7..

    If your having a problem with a Clean uninstall of Zone Alarm.. Try this Full proof method..

    Uninstall troubles and eventual success -> Manual removal
    I cannot find or run the ZoneAlarm uninstall program (XP/2000)
    I cannot find or run the ZoneAlarm uninstall program (Vista)

    Reboot computer

    3.) Try installing Windows 7..

    Reboot computer

    4.) once Windows 7 is installed and Updated with latest Microsoft Updates..

    Download the Latest ZA installer preferably with IE Browser and (no Download Manager/accelerator like Get-Right, Livewire, Bit-Torrent, uTorrent) and save it to your Hard drive.

    (MultiPlatform, installer will install on Both WinXP SP3 and Vista and Windows7)

    ZoneAlarm Extreme Security updates
    ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite updates
    ZoneAlarm Pro firewall updates
    ZoneAlarm Antivirus updates
    ZoneAlarm free updates

    5.) Now Install the new update (clean Install) and Accept the default Setting, Auto-Learn Mode and Choose Trusted Zone, not Internet Zone..

    *** NOTICE: Please note that ZAAV, ZASS and ZA Extreme do not play nice with many overlapping security tools (even if disabled).
