I have just deleted Zone Alarm and now find that no programs appear in the Install/Uninstall utility in the systems folder it is completly blank, any suggestions

Yes if you can still get into windows, shut computer down to DOS. Then at C:\WINDOWS> type

SCANREG /RESTORE

put the old date back before you removed ZoneAlarm it will put things back to what they was before

Tried Scanreg/restore but no change, possible that deleting Zone alarm was not the cause

You have five dates to go back to

PS if you have a Win98 CD put it in drive then from Run Type SFC press enter run program, you can go into settings and tick box for deleted files
