I've used ZA Free a long time.
What went wrong with my last ZoneAlarm update? It updated the program, not viruses.
After my most recent update to ZA Free, it started misbehaving. When it loads, it tells me there is no disk in the drive (Devices/Harddisk1/DR1). Well, of course there isn't. There IS no such drive.
I've used a reliable app to clean out all the megabytes of junk files, right after I go offline. After the update, ZA blocks my effort to let it clean what it found. I have to Exit ZA, do the cleaning, then reload the "zatray" file.
I've noticed no other ill-effects, BUT I'm wondering if ZA is still effective, and that it really DOES block internet access when I tell it to.
Should I reinstall the update? Or live with this inconvenience? Or revert to the most recent version? Is this possibly the result of some kind of interference?
