My Tvdebug log file on ZoneAlarm Pro has grown to something like 12MB. This is release 9.0 of ZAP under XP Pro SP3.

Is it true that I can delete it and ZAP will create a new, smaller one upon reinitializing?


Thanks,
Bartolo

Yes, you can delete the tvdebug log but only in Safe Mode. Start windows in the safe mode and then delete the WINDOWS\Internet Logs\tvDebug.log, and empty the recycle bin and reboot back to the normal mode. The tvdebug log is gone and ZAPro will recreate a new tvDebug.log, but it is now starting from 1k. Repeat this log cleaning procedure every so often depending on how often you use the computer, to keep the tvDebug.log to a small size.
This tvdebug log is encrypted and it's only use is if the zone alarm technical support asks for it. If you have no intention of sending logs to technical support, then you can disable the tvDebug.log and re-enable it if needed. To disable the logging CTRL+SHIFT+right click Z in system tray. Click on set debug level and choose Off in debug categories.
