More Problems with ZoneAlarm Update!

Needless to say, when I learned about ZoneAlarm Update 7.0.462 and the pre-checked offer of ZoneAlarm Spy Blocker which includes the Ask Toolbar, I was disappointed that yet another security software vendor appears to be after pay-per-install monies. However, that disappointment grew to new levels when I read about the issues folks are having with the software.

Some examples from postings at the Zone Alarm User Forum --
Freedomlist post:
"It happened to me - about 24 hours after I clicked on and installed the update. My PC would boot to the desktop screen but would not display my desktop icons or the task bar - so my PC was stuck.....
Eventually I figured out that it was vsmon.exe - True Vector Internet Monitor that was failing to load properly and completely swamping the PC.

I had to go into Safe Mode to Uninstall Zone Alarm -
then reinstall the previous version - so I would still have a firewall."
As Vincent said, "I realize with any new release/update there will be some people encountering problems - but this time it seems pretty bad - ". Indeed it is, Vincent, indeed it is.

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...

These facts are really interesting. Few of them were well known for me but many of them were brand new for me too!
I will print this one out and show to my friends because they will be definitely interested in that. Thanks!
