Can the “Web Security” components of ZoneAlarm Pro be uninstalled?

Despite unchecking the “toolbar installation” during ZAP custom install, the “Web Security” ZAForceField components were installed but not “activated” in Internet Explorer 9. This “install but disable” action would be useful to allow the “Web Security” functionality to be utilized if desired.

After the ZAP 11 installation completed, I see in IE9 that the ZoneAlarm Security Engine toolbar and the ZoneAlarm Security Engine Registrar Browser Helper Object are both disabled. The ZoneAlarm LTD Toolbar IswSvc service was installed and set to Auto start.

There is only one Un-installable Checkpoint entry in “Uninstall or change program” list: ZoneAlarm Pro. There is an Uninstall.exe “ZoneAlarm LTD Toolbar installation package” 1.5.393.22 in C:\Program Files\CheckPoint\ZAForceField). Can that be used to uninstall the “Web Security” components?
