I am trying to sort out my Dads's laptop - Windows XP o/s.
His connection to internet keeps disconnecting and I think it is to do with Zonealarm following latest update. Since update, he has also lost the ZA icon on desktop/taskbar. I have been unable to remove either via > Programmes > Zonealarm > Uninstall or via > Control Panel > Remove Programmes. I think it is because it is still running in the background. Any other way to switch off the application so that we can then uninstall and/or just remove the application/programme?
Their Firewall is one of the best but my worry is they are adding anti-virus and maybe anti-spyware on to the bundle.As this is new to them I would imagine AVG or Avast both free would be superior as this is what they were made to do. I would use Comodo.AVG or Avast and backed up with A Squared and Malwarebytes all free.
This day and age no Security Suite is going to protect you from all of the problems that we now have.
