Oh I need a brain oil change. And I knew better. But I decided to
"upgrade" from ZA 2.6 Pro to the current free version. As reported in
this NG, this current version has a few quirks and so I tried to go
back to my bullet-proof 2.6 Pro. The new version left all kinds of
registry entries and files on the computer even after the uninstall.
And then I got error messages left and right.
So I spent a few hours trying to clean out evidence of either program.
I've used the instructions from the ZA site to remove many left over
components after the automatic uninstall. Then I used several
registry cleaners to chase down a few more entries in the registry.
Then I did a search of the registry for the last few (?) ZA entries.
And now I intend to run the machine for a few days without a firewall
just to see if the problems really are related to ZoneAlarm.
IF ... oh IF ... I can get a few days without problems, then I intend
to reinstall the older version. Has anyone else had this experience
and would you have any further guidance for me?
Thanks in advance.
