It is a component of Zone Alarm and has a known issue associated with it. A Safe Mode uninstall, cleanup and subsequent reinstall is generally considered to be the most likely cure. It is also linked to EZ Armor (sic), which uses the ZA engine.

Boot into Safe Mode (F8 when prompted) and uninstall ZA.

Did what u said unistalled zone alarm in safe mode,then downloaded it again it starts to install then this comes up on screen
Set up uable to log into TrueVector service.install cannot continue without logging into TrueVector service.
please use the service manager to shut down TrueVector service and then restart the installer again

what has gone wrong please help

It didn't uninstall properly.

You see, this is one of the reasons why I don't use or recommend ZA.
