There is a file at this link called Zfix for ZoneAlarm (top right hand side of page) that will remove all traces of the product. It does not say if what operating systems it is for so I do not know for sure that it will work for Vista but I would give it a try

Tork, No I have not, just had it recommended to me in case I should have trouble upgading versions of ZA. I have not had enough of a problem installing different versions of ZA to need it and have never wanted ZA off of my system.

jjeisse, the best way would be to just search through your files for anything related to ZoneAlarm or Zonelabs. There should be a folder for it where you installed the product, and I do not know about Vista but in XP there are also logs in the Internet Logs folder (uninstaller probably does not touch those) and there is a ZoneAlarm folder in the Windows folder. XP also has registry entries for it under local machine, software

@Stang777 thanks for answering; I have never heard of Zfix.

@jjeisse You can find a list of files and registry keys for Zone Alarm from links at their website
For XP all zone alarm products see: I cannot find or run the ZoneAlarm uninstall program (XP/2000)

For Vista all zone alarm products see: I cannot find or run the ZoneAlarm uninstall program (Vista)

The above links are from zone alarm support center knowledge base and within the instructions are lists of the files and registry keys for a complete removal of any zone alarm product.

Tork, you are welcome.

jjeisse, you are welcome too but there is a reason ZoneAlarm does not let you do that you know. ZoneAlarm is designed to keep your computer safe and downloading torrents is often not safe.
