Thread: New ZA Free combo

    Default New ZA Free combo

    I was using ZA firewall and another anti virus. I reacted to the offer of the combo and duly downloaded it and installed after having used REVO uninstaller to get rid of the other anti virus and the ZA firewall.
    After a couple of days the system tray icon indicated that the anti virus or the product was out of date so the auto update had not worked. I opened the window and tried to update manually. The update window indicated that the updates had failed.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled the Combo but ZA will still not update automatically or manually.

    If updating does not work then the product is useless to me. Before I uninstall ZA and instal something else is there anything else I can try to get it working?
    Thanks in advance

    Normally is a bad idea to use uninstaller utilities for removing ZA. They often cause problems as in your case. Always first remove ZA with its own uninstaller (from windows) and if you have issues use the own ZA removal tool.

    I have tried all the suggestions. I have uninstalled and cleaned and got rid of Malwarebytes and Spybot search and destroy and have reinstalled and have rebooted about 5 times.

    The programme still will not update. I still get "update failed error" both for the product update and the Antivirus update.

    Nowhere does it indicate the nature of the error.

    I am nearly at the stage of booting ZA into touch and using something else so any further advice would be good. Thanks.
