I have tried both the 5.0 suite AND 5.0 Pro editions... I tried the
suite first... noted the following problem... WIPED my HD and
reinstalled a backup and then tried the 5.0 pro edition...


On rebooting I get the shutdown screen... then I if course get the
Bios info etc etc and the windows startup screen (with the little
green lights).... THEN I get another shitdown screen and the the PC
boots up... before installing the suite this did not happen...
after installing it it does... then I wiped my drive reinstalled a
backup which runs fine... so now I try 5.0 pro... same thing
happens... (note I am running E-trust anti-virus and ZA 4.5 before
this happens... this also prevents me from running a complete
scandisk as this is done during reboot... any help is appreciated...

regards,

Giovanni

There's a problem with the ZAP 5 update, and Zone Lab pulled
it down for rework. See my other message on this subject.

I was unaware of any issues. I just tonight got automated message about ZAP
5 update and went for it on two machines. If this version was pulled then
maybe it is back with fix or for some other reason it was sent to my system.
So far so good.

Totally agree with you.The link used to be...
http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/support/znalmInst...
After trying ZA once and uninstalling (without the true vector being
disabled ..it was ticked to start with windows),I found that page and was
shocked by how much junk and .vxd .dlls ZA leaves behind in the windows
system folder.Personally after my experience with it i wouldnt touch ZA with
a bargepole.I would like however to have that uninstall procedure again as
many friends have ZA at the moment and wish they hadnt.If you do have a link
for the xp/98 uninstalltion procedure it would be appreciated.Saves a lot of
time checking all the .vxd /.dll properties and searching for zonelabs :)
