Reinstall Zone Alarm. Then boot into safe mode and run the uninstaller from the Add/ Remove program.
In link below are images of steps to take during the uninstall.
You can also try to delete those files without reinstalling by trying to delete them after booting into safe mode.
You may have adware that was installed with ZA. You can use the two programs below to find and remove the adware.
EDIT: There is an uninstaller you can download here: ZoneAlarm Uninstall Tool Download
The ZoneAlarm Uninstall Tool will uninstall all versions of the ZoneAlarm firewall from your computer in the event that it will not uninstall properly via the Windows control panel. When you run the program it will ask if you want to remove the ZoneAlarm Extreme version, but will in fact remove all versions of the ZoneAlarm Firewall.
If you use it, I would still recommend using the two adware scanners linked above.

If I understand correctly, you presently have no active firewall. If so, check in the security center and attempt to activate Windows Firewall.
I have use Zone Alarm firewall for many years. It is very good firewall. You just have to be careful when installing it and UNcheck all other
things like toolbar, antivirus, antispyware, offers of other things that have nothing to do with the firewall. I also don't allow it to automatically update.
Be sure to use those adware scanners I suggested in my first post. You might be surprised what has gotten on your computer while installing
programs, browser add-ons, etc...especially freeware.

Thanks Buddy215 for the very helpful info that u have given;I did succed n my objective;yes I have window fire wall,the "red"warning sign would appear,at times"saying it were off'",but I'd check it,and it'll b on.Usually after i run my ccleaner,this would happen.Even tho my window firewall will b on,the warning sign just appears sometimes;so I decided to try ZA,but it caused all kind of problems,for me.So thank u again;yes i did download the Adware download as u suggested,and it help clean up other stuff that were on my pc.The second download u suggested,would'nt download;"saying it couldn't go n to the file,and advise me to try another,but don't know how to work that,this is a wonderful site,i'm learning some things by just reading info that u'all give to others,thanks again,for the follow-up,...

These are the instructions for using : (note to download to desktop and to exit any active security program(s) you have before attempting to scan. )
Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
Since you have found and removed adware using AdwCleaner and were having problems with the firewall you should do an online scan using Free ESET Online Antivirus Scanner
