zonealarm icon disappeared


Hi,

I had installed zonealarm free version in my home computer a few months back. (win XP serv pack 2)
I have recently noticed that the zonealarm icon in the task bar has disappeared.
I tried reinstalling the zonealarm ver 7 installation file, but it says that the true vector service needs to be stopped for the installation. (was not able to proceed thereafter...)

Based on some readings done on some help sites, i have checked the following:

1.the start- program also does not show the zonealarm entry. (this would have allowed me to uninstall the program).
2.the windows security center says that the zonealarm firewall is on.
3.the windows task manager does not show vsmon.exe running.

in the above circumstances, can anybody help me find out if the program is still installed and why it has become invisible?
is there any way to reinstall the program?

thanks in anticipation.

Did you try to uninstall ZA, first, and then re-install?

i am unable to unistall as:

1. the program is not listed in the start-> programs listing.
2. it is also not showing up in the control panel->add delete programs list.

from the above it would appear as if the program has been uninstalled. But the windows security center shows that "zonealarm firewall is running"

is there any way to know if the program is still there ( and has become invisible due to some reason) or it has been uninstalled?

regards

Hi sarvesh63,

Please navigate to C:\Program Files\Zone Labs\ZoneAlarm (or E:\programs\Zone labs\ZoneAlarm if you altered the default installation path) and look for, then double click on the file zauninst.exe if present, to start the Zone Alarm uninstaller.

It's not a good idea, yet, since you have some ZA leftovers.
Go Start>Run, type in:
services.msc
Click OK.
Services window will open.
Scroll down to find TrueVector Internet Monitor service.
Right click on it, and click Stop. Allow stopping service.
Now, try to reinstall ZA.

Hi Sarvesh63. If you have already tried removing Zone Alarm and you still have it showing up in the Windows Security Center then try this:

1. Click Start> Administrative Tools> Services
2 Stop the WMI Service
3. Delete the "repository" folder in C:\windows\system32\wbem
4. Start the WMI Service. Starting the service rebuilds the deleted folder and the database.
5. Restart the computer for the changes to take effect.
