Preferred Solution: New version of ZoneAlarm available

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: New version of ZoneAlarm available

I'm currently running the free version of ZoneAlarm. The version I have installed is 6.5.737.000 which has an installation file size of 13MB. On ZoneLabs' website, there's a free version 7.0.302.000 with an installation file size of 38.1MB. Is this the same free ZoneAlarm? Given the drastic increase in size, I'm a bit skeptical. That and if I manually check for updates via ZoneAlarm, it says I'm running the most current version.

Is anyone else running 7.0.302.000?

2) New ZoneAlarm Version Disappoints
ZoneAlarm is beginning to suffer from "kitchen sink" syndrome: Each version has added more and more features until what once was a simple, elegant firewall is now a complex security suite.

The newest version of ZA Pro is supposed to add active antivirus protection to your mail stream. I really didn't need this function--- I already have an AV tool guarding the mail--- but didn't see a way to tell ZAP to disable its separate AV protection. Maybe the setting was there, but I never got that far...

As soon as I tried gathering mail, my resident AV tool (Norton) went nuts, popping up an unending stream of "virus found and removed..." messages. My guess is that ZA changed the way it processes and stores mail files, so that my AV tool no longer recognized the already-processed files as safe. I wasted an hour or so trying to get the two tools to play nice, but eventually gave up in disgust: Who has time for this? I tried uninstalling the new ZAP and reinstalling the previous version, but Norton remained badly hosed by all the diddling I'd done to it. In the end, it was faster and simpler for me to roll my system back to the pre-change state, using ZAP 4x as a firewall, and Norton for AV protection. Now everything works fine again.

I'm not the only one having trouble:

Answer:New ZoneAlarm Version Disappoints

Been hearing bad things and was thinking of updating as mu year is up but I see no need if it is trouble. Was going to get the 4x that is on sale with rebate for $9.99.
I have 4.5.538.001 right now and it works great. See history.

So if I did buy the 4.x that is on sale I could go to ZA site and download 4.5.594.000.

Answer:WHich version of ZoneAlarm to download?

The Editor's Note at the bottom of the Majorgeeks.com download explains why http://www.majorgeeks.com/ZoneAlarm_Free_d388.html

The version on the ZA site probably does not include the Security Suite.

Which version you download depends on what you need/want. Personally I stayed with Version 6 because I did not want the bloat and nag screens that comes with the Security Suite. However, as it says, you can opt not to install that option.

"ZA 3.1 Free available to existing Users"

Quote from Zone Labs:
With over 17 million users of ZoneAlarm products, our primary concern with this launch is to provide a satisfactory upgrade experience for folks. To ensure that, we'll be making the upgrade available to a fixed percentage of our existing users every day, through the "Check for Updates" feature. This process will continue for several days before we officially announce ZoneAlarm on our site and make it available to the general public.

I've noticed that the newest free ZoneAlarm firewall available is version 7.0.302.000. Mine is version 6.5.737.000 and in the "Status" tab it claims it is up to date.

So my question is, is my firewall really up to date?

I do know that the new version includes the ZA security suite (which I do not want) and I'm wondering if the new version actually updated the firewall at all, or if it just added the extra software.

Thank you for your time! :^)

Is the free version of zonealarm good enough to use with broadband or should I use the packaged Mcafee personal firewall plus?If I decide to stay with zonealarm will I have to remove or re-set it in order to accept the change from dial-up to broadband modem?Many Thanks

Answer:Zonealarm (free version) and broadband.

I have been using the free version of Zonealarm with Broadband for about 18 months and am more than satisfied with it ~ and I'm a bit paranoid about security! (even though a hacker probably doesn't want my holiday pics etc)No you won't have to reconfigure when you connect to Broadband. Any program that requires access to the internet shall request it and you can decide to allow once or permanently. If you upgrade a program Zonealarm will ask the next time it tries to connect to verify you are still happy to allow the connection.Dead easy and free!

I run ZoneAlarm (Not Pro) and Ive just installed Kazaa lite Version 2. I was running Kazaa Lite 1.7 just fine, but 2 is causing trouble.

I'll try to explain everything I've noticed without rambling.

When I try to get Kazaa to connect with ZoneAlarm running, it takes a long time, but it actually does connect. While connected my machine is struggling, CPU usage way up and things get slower.

When I try to connect with ZoneAlarm shut down, it connects quickly, and there's no strain on the system.

Old Kazaa was listed in the Allowed programs area of ZoneAlarm, but I removed it. I figured when I tried to connect new Kazaa it would pop up the window and ask me if I wanted to allow it, but that didn't happen. Also, I try to manually add it to the list, but nothing happens, it won't appear in the list.

At the top on the ZoneAlarm program control screen, you see the icons of active programs. KazaaLite's icon is there and flashing, and if you scroll over it you get the bubble that says "Kazaa Lite Listening to Port(s): TCP: 1214,80"

So, there you go. I don't really know what to do. ZoneAlarm is not actually blocking KazaaLite, but its not getting along too well with it. Anyone know what settings I need to change to make them work together?

This may seem a weird question, but I just installed this firewall and it appears to be working as intended. But when I click on the "Help" link, I get told (repeatedly) "Help not available."

I think it must have a Help menu - I can't see how it could not have one--but even a reinstall did not produce a help menu. Could it be that it was left out as it's the free version so that you'd be tempted to go to an upgrade?

Hi,

I just installed the new version of ZoneAlarm (6.0.667.000). I had the previous version, then I downloaded this new version and chose to do a fresh install (as it said that was the most stable way to do it). It did not say I needed to unintall the old version first. I have Windows 98SE and also use the free AVG.

Question:
Under Firewall - Zones: There are two things listed. The first is a "PPP Adapter" which lists an IP address (that changes each time I dial-up), Entry Type is "Adapter Subnet", and Zone is "Internet". I remember this being there with the older version of ZoneAlarm and believe it's supposed to be there.

However, there is now a second/new entry listed.

Name: Loopback adapter
IP Address/Site: 127.0.0.1
Entry Type: IP Address
Zone: Trusted

...however, I do have my security for the trusted zones set to high
just to be safe (as I do with the internet zone).

I tried looking this up in the ZoneAlarm help, and it talks about "VPN connections" which I have no idea what that is (and as far as I know, I don't have anything like that).

So, is this supposed to be listed? If so, why? If not, do I remove it? And am I okay having the Trusted Zones security level set to High just to be safe?

Thanks for the help!

I built a new pc a month ago and have been running Win7 RC1 on it for the time being. Obviously Win7 is coming out next week so I am getting ready to purchase the full version. I could buy the Retail version of Win7 Home Premium 64-bit for $199, or the System Builders version for $99 on newegg.

Can anybody go ahead and buy the System Builders version, or is that restricted to actual pc resellers? Would newegg ask me for a resellers license or something if I try to order it? I built the pc, don't need MS support for it, and will only ever use that copy of Win7 on that pc. I just hate spending twice as much money for the Retail version if legally I can buy and use the System Builders version for half the price. Or am I better off paying more money for the Retail version?

Also, if I can buy the System Builders version, I assume it will come with the install dvd as well as install key? Plus, with that, I can install that copy on just this pc as many times as I want without limitations, correct? Meaning, I usually format and reload windows on a pc twice a year so over 4-5 years I will be reinstalling that copy of windows on the same pc 8-10 approx over the years.
 

Answer:Buying full version of Windows7: Retail version or System Builders version?

Anyone can buy an OEM license. They're cheaper because they don't include Microsoft support. You are your support. OEM licenses are tied to the hardware on which they're installed. Technically you are prohibited from installing an OEM copy on a completely different system, though many people will do this and successfully activate their copy by saying their motherboard failed and had to be replaced, etc.

Hello,Few days ago I run Lenovo software update utility. There was an update available for the dolby audio driver and I applied it. Since then every time I reboot the computer the dolby audio application fails to start (it is in the start up). The message displayed is "The current Dolby audio driver version is 7.2.8000.14 and the software application expects driver version 7.2.7000.7. Please install a valid driver and software application combination." There is no available download for the application in the support section of Lenovo's website. This problem caused some applications to stop working (e.g. Spotify reports an error with the sound card and fails to play music).Please, advice. Thank you.













Solved!

Go to Solution.

I installed a Japanese version of windows 10 but then bought an English version and installed that after finding all the menus could not be changed to English during the install.
My question is does the English version overwrite the JP version or are files left on the SSD using up space?
Also in the end I returned the English version cause I found you can add a language pack to the JP version. The problem with this is that if you get a blue screen the Windows messages are in Japanese. So now unless I can change this I'm going to go back to an English version of Windows 10.

Hi

I joined the Insider Preview Program 4 months ago. I regularly updated all builds but since about 3 weeks, I do not receive any updates. I know that the last build is 10532 but I do not receive those updates. I contacted Microsoft this morning and they tell me that th1 10240 is a version for developers and that I am not supposed to have this version.

Since I installed Windows 10 Insider Preview over my Windows 8.1, what can I do to remain in the Program but moving up to version 10532?

Or Duel boot UK OSWin7 leaving the Danish version OS Win7 on the system.
What is the easy way round.

Answer:Remove Dainish Win7 for UK version or Duel boot the UK version.

Firstly - Do you need to retain the Danish version? If not and you have the Win 7 install disk (UK version) Boot from that, format and do a FULL install. Then download and install the Service Packs bearing in mind that all software will have to be reinstalled.
If you want to Dual Boot then here are the instructions for doing so (then remove the Danish version at a later from the boot menu) enter link description here

When you install a trial version of an AVG security product on your Windows PC you may not feel convinced to buy premium model. However, you may like to continue the use of free version. This is only possible when you uninstall the trial version and download the copy of the free antivirus program thereafter. The AVG Downgrader application helps you complete this process with ease. The program converts trial versions of AVG products into AVG Free. You can download the application from AVG's website under tools and diagnostic utilities section. You will need to restart the system to finalize the downgrade to AVG Free Antivirus.

Is there a difference between the MSDN subscription version of Vista Ultimate and the Retail version that would cause the Virtual Server2005 R2 SP1 installation to fail on a PC upgraded from Home Premium (retail version) to Ultimate (MSDN subscription version)?

I have a Vista x64 Home Premium that came loaded with software from the manufacturer that I would lose if I were to overwrite it by a new installation from my MSDN subscription version of Vista Ultimate.

If I install Vista Ultimate as a brand new installation, Virtual Server installation works fine.

But if I install Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 after I upgraded Vista Home Premium to Vista Ultimate, I get the following error at the last phase of the installation: ?Windows Installer has stopped working? and then it sends to Microsoft the attached 3 files.

I even tried Windows Installer 4.5 but it did not work either:

I clicked on the CD drive icon so I could get access to the XP CD.

I clicked on the "reinstall XP" option but then I got the message saying I could not reinstall XP because the version on my hard drive is newer than the XP version on my XP-Home CD.

But here in my country gfx cards are too expensive. Only the choice for me is to buy msi r4670-2d1g which is a 1gb version or Geforce GT240 512mb ddr3 so i want to know that is there any difference between 4670 1gb and GT240 512mb ddr3 , if there is, then which one is faster and by how much!!!

though 1gb has lower mem. clk. but does that make it slower than gt240 .The other available options are geforce 9800gt, radeon 4850, radeon 4890....etc. but these card need a bulky psu which my system lags.

so i am in need of an advice that which one is faster between these two:MSI radeon 4670 1gb or geforce gt240(which is 512mb ddr3)

BTW i have Samsung T220 22" monitor.

Greetings Clubsters. I recently ran into a spot of bother upgrading from Nero 11 to 16. My original N11 was on my H drive (which failed) and so I thought I might install N16 on another drive (D. However, Nero will not install a new product without firstly uninstalling the previous version. I tried changing the drive letter, however this did not work. Apart from installing another drive H: and reinstalling N11 (which I really don't want to have to do) I can see no other way around this. I have tried several Registry Cleaners, however I'm not real impressed with any of those types of apps.
So, any suggestions (other than soak my sorrows and accept the inevitable?) Any help will be greeted with great enthusiasm.

Answer:Nero will not install a new version without first uninstalling the previous version

I dont see any solution. Your Registry points to a Drive which does not exist. See if you can search for the keys manually and delete all that have "Nero" written in the keys. Thats the only thing I can think of.

According to the MSDN site :-When a 16-bit installer or application is launched, the following error message is displayed:
The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.I have an application (SPFPC V4.0) which I used to run with no problem on XP SP2.
But when I try it on my Vista Business 64 bit system I get that message. I have tried all of the compatibility options with no success.

Maybe I am being simplistic, but I would think that if it runs OK on XP SP2 then it probably isn't a 16 bit application.

Any ideas anyone.

Answer:the version of WindowsThe version of this file is not compatible with you're running

but I would think that if it runs OK on XP SP2 then it probably isn't a 16 bit application.



XP supports 16 bit applications, so there is no sound basis for your belief.

Hello;

Purchased a PC that was supposed to have English content. Turns-out certain apps are in Spanish, most of which I have been able to correct. My
biggest problem though is MS Internet Explorer 6. The browser is in Spanish, and while I was successfully able to download the English version, I get a program warning suggestion that while I could go ahead and install the IE6, I should remove the Spanish version first from "Add/Remove".

Since "Add/Remove" is part of the browser, it too is in Spanish.
When I go to remove the program, it doesn't offer the two options as its offered in the English version- "Remove or Cancel", but basically something that indicates (loose translation I think!) "Repair or " Replace" with a previous version (which I believe there was- in English, prior to the Spanish replacement but I'm not certain)

My question is, since there isn't a clear choice, should I attempt "Repair" or
"Restore-I don't want this to end-up a total reinstallation of W2K all because of a browser issue!

Any and all suggests would be genuinely appreciated- thank you!

Hey-
My hard drive crashed a few weeks ago. Computer store said they couldn't recover anything off the hard drive. My neighbor is a computer guy and let me borrow an external device to "read" my hard drive. He suggested using FileRescue to recover the info on the crashed drive. FileRescue has a free trial version and a pay version. What's the difference? Should I just bite the bullet and pay for the full version? I'm really just interested in recovering some pictures and excel spreadsheets. Please advise...
Thanks
Ramona

Answer:Difference between free trial version and pay version of FileRescue

It depends on the extent of the hard drive failure. If the system does not recognise the drive you may not be able to recover anything at all.Typically, the trial version will show you what can be recovered but may not do so or with limited resultsTry Recuva its free and pretty good

Good Day

Gentlemen

I would Like to know the Difference between the 2

and is the 1607 mandatory ? If not this means that 1511 version 10586.545 is correct and up to date ? is this correct ??

Many thanks

Answer:10 Version 1511 VS 10 Version 1607 whats the Difference ?

Microsoft still hasn?t released the Anniversary Update to Windows 10 Mobile users, but that doesn?t mean they?ve completely forgotten about their smartphone customers. Today, according to Windows Central, Microsoft has released an update to production Windows 10 Mobile users that pushes the non-Insiders version to Build 10586.545.



Windows 10 Mobile gets a pre Anniversary Update release, to 10586.545






Updates are cumulative, with each update built upon all of the updates that preceded it. A device needs to install the latest update to remain supported.

I downloaded win10 preview and installed on a virtualbox VM running on a Win7 system.
And when i check the Registry entry of Win10 , i see 6.3 as version, but in the screen shot that you provided here it shows 6.4. Which one is correct?
and what would be the Major version, Minor version, Architecture values for the final version of Windows 10 ? Please let us know.

I also wrote a piece of C# code in .NET 4.5 just to display the OS versions.
private
voidbutton1_Click(objectsender,EventArgse)
{
label1.Text =
Environment.OSVersion.Version.Major.ToString();
label2.Text =
Environment.OSVersion.Version.Minor.ToString();
label3.Text =
Environment.OSVersion.Version.MajorRevision.ToString();
label4.Text =
Environment.OSVersion.Version.MinorRevision.ToString();
}
And here is the result that I get on the win10 preview and installed on a virtualbox VM running on a Win7 system

So it looks like there is no consistency. Please let us know Major version, Minor version, Architecture values for the final version of Windows 10

I am using windows 7 64 bit and after reformattin my computer,i drag my files from my external hard disk into my laptop.the error stated make sure i am using 32 or 64 bit and i am using that.how do i solve this?

Answer:The version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you are runnin

Hi Haruki92,

What files are you trying to transfer? Regular files (documents, photos etc) should be fine to just drag over. However some applications are not able to run in a 64-bit environment.

Please post exactly what you're transferring and a screenshot if possible.

So I bought what I thought what the full version of Windows 7 Pro online for the student discount for $65. I got it all installed and the activation key wouldn't work.

Long story short I got the upgrade version on accident. So I got that refunded and I'm about to just go buy Home Premium. I need to install it. Do I need to uninstall Pro before I install Home Premium? Or will it just get rid of it for me when I install it?

Answer:Got the wrong version installed. Need to install correct version

No need to uninstall. The new installer will clear the disk.

Answer:DxDiag Version Compatibility Issue, Which version should i download?

Welcome to Seven Forums mclarren. That dll is from DirectX 9 that dll should reside in both System32 and SysWOW64. The correct download if needed would be

Download DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer from Official Microsoft Download Center

I can zip up both dll's, but if the download corrects the issue, no need. Let us know. A Guy
