When i tried to install n.p.f to supplement nav03,i received error message 1402 Could not write to hkey local machine shared tech nisl. I looked up the error on M.Soft K.Base which instructed that I check various permissions (myself being the administrator having full control of the keys)within the registry editor. Also to uncheck one box and check the remainding box in advanced edit settings. I am a bit worried about changing anything. Should I create a system restore point? Do I need to back up any files?
Or do I forget n.p.f and stick with ZA, which I have had no problems with.
I think I have already answered myself?

You have to uninstall Zone alarm first then do a search for any remaining Zone alarm files you didn't say what you have done here,in my view for what it's worth Zone alarm is better Norton products seem to take over your computer.

Thanks gold 47 for your comments. I uninstalled Zone Alarm before and searched for remaining files as you pointed out. This came up with 3 files but I could only delete 1 of them, so i proceeded.
