Ok iv downloaded all the stuff kommunist said to use on a comp, altho the zone alarm has a program window along the bottom of the task bar ?

I know it has an little Z icon along at the far right beside the clock but it also has a window open beside all my other open program windows.

Have you gone through the registration/tutorial screens? Otherwise just close it. It shouldn't open like that when you reboot, you should just get the z in the sys tray.

i solved my bsod problem. when downloading zonealarm, download only. do not download and install. Then install yourself after download by rightclicking and select run as admin. it will work fine then. :)

ive tried zonealarm on my brand new pc with vista and it installs and works fine but really slows down the startup of the pc :(

does anyone else have the same problem or a fix as i like zonealarm?

Get rid of it, I used it all the time but had to go into settings to allow any program access to net inc online games.

Had it for 3 years and in the last 6 months of having it wondered why it kept shutting itself down.

Doing a google search it shows hackers can get in a back door which shuts down the software and it targets machines with Zonealarm

Comodo is much better!
