Cant install zone alarm firewall onto Vista laptop

  Mark-335400 20:20 12 Aug 2008

I have purchased both a laptop and tower from PC World that both run windows Vista. I took up the 3 month free trial for Norton that was pre installed and now has expired. I have tried many times to install Zone Alarm but 1st error usually locks up and mentions a checkpoint error. I have downloaded the small install file from Zone Alarms website which then hits the error of not being able to connect to the http// etc site

Any ideas?

Hi Halmer, not sure I 1st went to free download site which down loaded a 44mb file, if you try and run this it gives the check point warning and locks up, the 2nd way i've downloaded is by way of zone alarms own web site which downloads a small starter file of 205 kb but this turns up the http// error message
