zone Alarm True vector monitor shutting down

  jorel 23:31 14 Jan 2007

Hi, I have a problem with Zone Alarm (free edition for hime use). Occasionally I get a message pop up to saying 'Zone Alarm true Vector monitor has shut down, do you want to restart it?'. This can happen two or three times within a minute and sometimes it refuses to restart at all when I click the 'yes' option, resulting in my having to shut down Zone Alarm and restart it. It seems to be a totslly random event as to when it happens and it appears to have started since I have been usuing IE 7. Is anyone else experiencing problems like this with IE7? First thought was a virus and malware scan but both came up clean. Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have the latest version of Zonealarm free? You could also try uninstalling Zonealarm and then reinstalling, as this often solves problems.

Or you could try uninstalling it completely and putting on Sygate or Comodo.
I always think if its a free program and its not behaving right,i cant spend hours trying to fix it when there are other good programs around that will do the job.
If i have paid for a program thats a different matter,i will spend hours getting it to work

Thanks for the advice guys. Went back to IE6 and installed Sygate. Problem solved. Tried reinstalling Zone Alarm first but problem persisted. I think that Zone Alarm and IE7 may have some sort of compatibilty issue.

This happened to me with ZA I posted a message to their forum a while back and their advice was to uninstall and then delete the folder C:\Windows\System32\Zone Labs.

After doing that do a clean install of ZA. Works atreat.
