    Default Blue Screen of Death

    I di not do a clean install and my laptop crashed. In safe mode I was able to clean up, restart and tried again = crashed. After much cleaning (revo Pro, CCleaner, PCTools Reg Mechanic) I think ZAES is cleaned off my XP laptop. I don't want to try 130-... again but go back to 120-.... I tried with the download I previously had but it failed. Can I go back? If not what more can I do?

    Older versions of Zone Alarm are not Recommended and no longer supported..

    Try this clean install procedure that works for most users..

    Follow these instructions Below to clean your computer of the old version and any conflicting 3rd party Security programs, then install a clean new copy of the current supported version of ZA

    The instruction for a clean install are below

    1. Download the latest ZA 13 (2015) version
    <== click here

    2. Remove your current ZA version (in XP use Windows add/remove programs/Windows 7/8 Uninstall a program)

    3. Remove other security tools installed. Use to double check no left overs are present.

    4. Clean your system and registry with the Free Ccleaner.exe
