windows xp home sp2.

I have been using zonealarm free firewall for ages and no problems. Thought i'd uninstall it to try another for a change. I uninstalled through add/remove but computer froze. I now takes ages to boot up,zonealarm does not start, it shows zonealarm firewall in add/remove progamees but it won't uninstall it not let me reinstall it. I have also tried uninstall from ccleaner but again no joy.

any ideas?

many thnaks

If system restore is not possible try deleting the zonelabs folder from C:\Windows\System32\Zonelabs then use a good registry cleaner such as from click here it's a free download then afterwards reboot and try a fresh install.
