I currently run Windox XP with ZoneAlarm and AVG Antivirus. Everything was running OK till I accepted the Zonealram update today. It installed well but ActiveX would not allow zlclient to be installed in my start up registry based on a previous decision made by me.
I don't recall doing this but I obviously have and now everytime I start up my computer, ZoneAlarm will not initiate, I have to do this manually.
Does anyone know how I change the startup registry to allow zlclient to be installed and as I am novice, please could I have an idiots guide, coz this idiot is getting frustrated!
erh, that setting has now changed to "Enable" and I didn't do a thing! Wierd.
Had a look at that link and went into Spybot, that entry was not listed at all.
Do you think I still need to do a clean install and by that do you mean, remove my old updated ZoneAlarm, then completely install? Will that get round the ActiveX problem, ie will it forget my previous setting?
Open zonealarm...Program control...Programs...Scroll down..to the Zone alarm Client...what do you see..? .are any ticked or question marked,mine are all question marked...you can change yours by double clicking each tick/question mark
Right, I did what you said, completely removed ZoneAlarm, ran CCleaner (brilliant little programme), restarted, ran new install .... and still wont start up.
I have to go into Programme Files, find the zlclient application and start ZoneAlarm by clicking on it. I did notice, however when looking through settings of ZoneAlarm, the tick box for Loading ZoneAlarm at start up, wouldn't stay ticked. Everytime I went back to look at it, somehow my tick had been removed.
Just about to try the run thing so will report back soon.
