The latest version of Free Zone Alarm v.70.462.000
that most are prompted to update to
is causing people problems -
of not being able to BOOT after installation.
I realize with any new release/update there will be some people encountering problems - but this time it seems pretty bad -
See the threads at the Zone Alarm User Forum
some examples -
Can't Reboot after 7.0.462 update
Upgraded to 7.0.462.000, now computer wont boot at all
This is the biggest screw-up I have ever seen.
7.0.462.000 Installation Nightmare
It happened to me - about 24 hours after I clicked on and installed the update. My PC would boot to the desktop screen but would not display my desktop icons or the task bar - so my PC was stuck.....
Eventually I figured out that it was vsmon.exe - True Vector Internet Monitor that was failing to load properly and completely swamping the PC.
I had to go into Safe Mode to Uninstall Zone Alarm -
then reinstall the previous version - so I would still have a firewall.
