Hi,
You can ADD the "Zone alarm" executable to your windows startup.
This can be done in 1 simple way.

1. Locate the "Zonealarm.exe" in your "Program files" folder. Usually your Program Files folder will be here "C:\Program Files". Just run a search for "Zonealarm.exe" inside this folder.

2. After locating the "Zonealarm.exe" file, right-click on that file. And select "Create Shortcut".

3. After that you'll find a "Zonealarm.exe" Shortcut file or icon inside the same folder.

4. Just COPY or CUT the shortcut file.

5. Now Right click on the "START" button.

6. Select "Open all users".

7. This will open a windows explorer window. Locate "Programs" folder and Enter it.

8. Inside you should locate "Startup" folder and enter it.

9. Once u ar inside the "Startup" folder, paste the already copied "Zonealarm.exe" shortcut file.

10. That's it. Now try re-starting the system.

Thanks

Often two firewalls on the same LAN conflict. Both are trying to do the same job; the conflict may cause an otherwise good Internet connection to drop. If this happens, use the NETGEAR firewall, and disable the other. Two situations are described here, but the general approach applies to any firewall active on a NETGEAR LAN.
The Windows firewall may be turned on without you knowing, for example, if the XP Network Setup Wizard was used.
To Disable Windows' Firewall
See Microsoft knowledgebase article: How to: Enable or Disable Internet Connection Firewall In Windows XP. (Note that you must be logged on as administrator, if you are not, no "Advanced" tab will appear as described.) For hints about using these Windows features, search firewall in Windows help, and select the article Enable or Disable Internet Connection Firewalls.

To Enable the NETGEAR Firewall
Consult your router's User Guide or Reference Manual. Look for sections such as "Using Basic Firewall Services" or "Allowing and blocking keywords, sites, services". Manuals are available for downloading on this site.

To Disable the Norton Firewall
  1. Right-click the Norton Internet Security icon on the system tray and select Disable.

To Disable the McAfee Firewall
  1. Uninstall McAfee
  2. Reinstall McAfee, selecting Custom Installation.
  3. Unselect McAfee Firewall.
  4. Finish the rest of the McAfee installation as you did before.
To Disable Zone Alarm
  1. Right-click the Zone Alarm icon in the System Tray, and select Shutdown Zone Alarm.
Also search the Zone Alarm forum for such issues as this product continually logging people off AOL, or Windows XP wrongly reporting that Zone Alarm has been turned off.

J6450 Prints multiple copies


After spending a lot of time on the net looking for an answer I decided to spend some time to see what was different betweent the computers. It turns out that the 2 computers that I was having the problem on had Zone Alarm installed and the 3rd computer that it was working on did not. So I dug around in Zone Alarm and marked every HP software item as allowed. I then rebooted the computer and submitted a test page to the printer. Low and behold 1 copy as I wanted. I proceeded to test it some more and now am only getting one copy when I ask for one. The problem appears to be that Zone Alarm was messing it up. I still have Zone Alarm running, I just needed to mark HP as an accepted program under every listing in Zone Alarm.

Xp pro sp3 setup problem for optional windows components


It looks like you have a copy of Zone Alarm on your PC and Windows XP Pro SP3 is not liking it. One thing that you can try is to disable Zone Alarm by right clicking on the icon that it creates on the lower right hand corner of the screen and see if you can find a "disable" or "shutdown" option. After doing so, then try to install again. Another thing that you can try is to completely remove Zone Alarm, try to install SP3 again, and if it installs, re-install Zone Alarm. However, I think the easiest path is to disable Zone Alarm temporarily. Let me know if this helps you or not.

Unlisted device in homenetwork


no just the IP address. you have to enable to share on both computers in order to share any files.
you can share the whole hard drive of just certain folder.
first, you need to configure both machine on the same subnet, rename the machine so you see what is what. (right click on the network place> properties. right click on Local Area Connection. select the TCP/IP and configure it).
NOTE: it will be easier, if you configure all your equipment on the same subnet. (like: 192.168.168 200-10/255.255.255.0)
2). control panel> system> computer name, configure that (both machine need to be in the same group).
3). control user account, you need to asign a user password for whom ever need to access the share. (it don't work without a password.)
4). don't forget to reconfigure your zone alarm and Norton, on the ip address part.
5). restart the machine. click on the network place and see if you see the machines. double click on the machine. put in the password. you should be able to gain access to sharing the machine.

Set program association


ZM9 is a zone alarm file extension. Once Zone Alarm is installed you should have no further problems. If zone alarm is installed then associate the file to it by browsing for the .exe file of Zone Alarm.

True Vector


Click the Start button. Choose Run. Type in msconfig, then click OK. In the window that comes up, click the tab Startup (on the top line). Look for TrueVector Service and uncheck the box next to it. Don't change anything else. Click OK. The next time you start the computer, Msconfig will pop up to tell you you've made a change. Tell it not to start next time and close the window.
That should do it.
By the way, you said you DELETED Zone Alarm. You can't just delete a program. You need to remove it by going to Control Panel and then Add/Remove Programs. Otherwise there will be remnants of the program that might still try to run.

Struck up of system


Hi,
Zone Alarm 2005.....!!!!!..GET rid of it ..this thing provides more problems than it solves, beleive me (...and my version more recent than this). Start windows in safe mode and proceed to delete it in remove-install program section (if you don`t do this it won`t remove correctly). Reboot and after that you should be ok. Hint: ...get a life and choose anything else than Zone Alarm as a Firewall-Antivirus solution, 35.00$ or so is worth investing in something good, try McAfee.
