  1. Does anyone know of fix for running ZA with XP
    I looked everywhere even ZA website had no help tried
    there patch did not work.
    I don't trust M$ firewall and I hate norton stuff
    when I run ZA my pc locks up no alt ctrl delete no nothing
    the event viewer shows zip other than saving stuff in memory
    and dcom cdrom issue.
    I stop running ZA and all is right,or its one big coincidence???

    I have never had a problem running XP and zonealarm.

    first thing i would do is uninstall/reinstall ZoneAlarm you may have a corrupt install.

    In event viewer you do not have any errors, under system or application?

    sounds like you have a bad copy.

    ZoneAlarm has this crap Vector thing that eats resources.
    Ditch ZoneAlarm and surf to http://soho.sygate.com and get their free firewall.
    If you are a control-freak, you may also like www.kerio.com or www.agnitum.com and use one of their free firewalls.

    tried the uninstall
    got newest copy still hanging up
    I think it's the vector monitor,thats messing xp up
    will try kerio first.I can be acontrol freak at times
    I don't like software just doing what it wants without a good explaination.
    I used to run blackice ,but these days with learning php and flash I don't have the time.
