    The security toolbar thats now included in all versions of ZA has an anti Phishing feature called Site Check. That technology is based on part of the Forcefield code.

    I would not advise trying to stop it from running. using msconfig. That could result in performance issues or un-reliable operation of your PC.

    You can uninstall version 10 then re-install it and during the installation configuration process un-check the option to install the toolbar.

    Uninstall by going to control panel add remove programs on XP

    Make sure when you install again, when the installer is at the Option menu to un-check ALL 3 options there.

    Also turning off Web Security in the client and rebooting will disable any other forcefield technologies if you don't want the additional protections.
