When I uninstalled Zonealarm some time ago, I used the free version of Revo-uninstaller click here . This program allows you to remove the files left behind by the Windows uninstaller, which is what appears to have happened to you.

I would go through the registry manually if you have that skill as Zone Alarm (in my experience) has always been insiduous and difficult to remove fully. I haven't actually tried removing ZA with Revo, but that is only because I refuse to use ZA, whereas I do use Revo Uninstaller.
