My internet access "locks up" courtesy of Zone Alarm after a couple of pages of browsing. This means (according to the page that automatically comes on screem from ZA) restarting and messing about with the ZA interface and checking the settings. The odd thing is, I don't actually have Zone Alarm (nor an interface) as it was uninstalled (properly I thought!) several months ago. None of their procedures works so it is suggested I remove the registry entry. Unfortunately, problems here too. I reboot in Safe Mode, select Start, Run, type in "regedit" and hit OK. The appropriate window flashes onto the screen for about half a second then disappears again!
Any help with the 'regedit' problem gratefully appreciated. Also, anyone else had similar difficulties with Zone Alarm?

What happens if you try regedit in normal mode.

Same thing in "normal" mode.

Try reinstalling ZoneAlarm again, then uninstalling it, following the instructions at click here carefully.

I recommend Sygate if you want a decent firewall.

Or you could try rebooying in dos mode and removing from registry dos name is ZONEAL~1.LNK
