New (Free) Zonealarm V.5.0.590.015 Update Problems

  albu 13:48 27 May 2004

I downloaded and installed the new update v.5.0.590.015 of the free Zonealarm firewall.Then my AOL 9 broadband went sluggish then failed to respond as XP Home went very slow and sluggish.

A system restore solved the update issue but now the previous version fails to work properly,no icon is in the system tray and the main program fails to open.It may be a TrueVector service problem but as the main program cannot be opened then I'm at a loss?

A security check at symantec/securitycheck shows all is safe for now?

The zonelabs forum shows many problems with the V5

Can anyone offer me any advice please?

Seems tobe causing a problem when updating over the previous version. Try uninstalling and deleting all zone alarm files and a clean install of v5.

I installed the latest ZA update over 4.5.538.0 about a week ago and it's doing the usual splendid work in the background.

Updated over previous version without any problems. The latest version has an AV monitor which could not detect my AV (AVG). Switched this monitor off as a couple of my friends found it caused problems!!!

Not a fix for your problem may may help others.
