    Default Problems with installing latest ZA Free 9.2 version

    I've tried installing the latest free version of zonealarm. It works fin up until the restart where I get a message asking me to send in an error report because of stability problems and giving me three options about the level of accuracy.

    Then windows explorer encounters a problem and has to quit.
    Finally there is a forced restart.

    I've tried to install twice and both times I have had to restart in safe mode and uninstall zonealarm. Any idea's as to why this is happening?

    I'm running windows xp if that helps.

    Please and thank you
