after upgrading from 6.5.737.000 to 7.0.337.00
(Free Version of Zone Alarm
), I am not able to log off Windows XP Pro
(SP2) on the first try (about 50% of the time).
It never takes more than two tries. This same behavior occurs if I try to shutdown.
After the
first attempt to log off, there is a small but perceptable screen flicker, but the sysyem does no log off. On the 2nd attempt, there is the same screen flicker then the system logs off as normal. The flicker has always been present since as far back as I can remember.
I'm resonably sure that the problem is related to the Zone Alarm 7.0.337. REASON:
I can restore my entire Win XP system from a backup which has Zone Alarm 6.5.737.00 installed and the problem does not exist. As soon as I install
7.0.337.00, the log off problem returns.
I have tried to re-download the Zone Alarm update, but that does not seem to correct the problem. Any Ideas?

Operating System:Windows XP Pro
Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
Software Version:7.0
