Hi.  I have just removed my free zone alarm completely using Revo uninstaller and have windows security essentials
in place but it seems that there is still a trace left behind which is conflicting with with  mywindows firewall.  It may be a
false message from my security center but i have had to reset my windows firewall a couple of times already.
 
there is a thing called clean.exe from zonealarm.com but i am wary of it.  Any advice would be most welcome.

When you used REVO, did you click to scan for traces and delete them? I have mistakingly forgot to do that. Then did you reboot your computer after you uninstalled?

To see if any traces of Z/A are left =>

 

Download Screen317 Security Check and save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt
* Please post the contents of that document.
Note:: If any security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so.

 

Thanks -

Hi. I used the removal tool:clean.exe from zonealarm.com to remove any traces and it worked.  I'm back to using windows firewall

& updated my version of microsoft security essentials. I possibly did not use REVO correctly but it has been sorted.  THANKS
