One route suggested in the link is to do the following. I have not needed to do this myself so I cannot give authority to its success.
Start, my computer, double click your C drive and open program files.Delete anything to do with Zonelabs.

into the Run box (Start>Run) and click OK.

From the Windows Services panel that appears ensure that True Vector Internet Monitor service is set to Automatic (highlight the line and click on the menu to change if necessay and OK). Exit.

windows firewall/internet connection sharing

and this is set to automatic
