Zonealarm help!

  Ronyap 18:29 03 May 2006


I have recently uninstalled Zonealarm because it was causing a lot of trouble. Just when I was thinking that everything was fine, this Zonealarm page Blocks every single Internet site I go on to. But, every time I restart my PC, the Internet will work for like 5 mins and then the ZA thing will come again.

Here is a pic of what I am talking about:

I have done some research, and I have found out that I may not have totally uninstalled ZA yet. So, I am gonna try and reinstall ZA and then uninstall it following the instructions in my research. If the problem still occurs, I will have to rely on you people =)


PS. sorry for the small pic

1 How do you connect to the internet?

2 Which anti virus system do you use?

3 Which version of windows do you use?

4 What other spyware catchers/firewalls do you use if any?

Which version of za are you using? Have you updated it recently?

I spent several hours working on a pc for a friend who told me he had uninstalled za. There was no sign of it but it was there and blocking. I had to download the latest version and install it to get everything working properly. Once done it works very well.

If it leaves bits behind ccleaner may get rid of it, it can look for bits of programs left behind and remove them, very useful especially for freeing up disk space.

Thanks everyone, Ive solved it.

I reinstalled Zonealarm, then I had to untick the box that said: 'Load Zonealarm at startup' or something like that anyways under preferences. Then, I uninstalled it, and the internet now works fine.

Thanks for everyone who replied, and I hope this thread will help others too =).

Why not try other free FW's such as Comodo, Netveda or Kerio? You may be pleased.
