Zone Alarm uninstall grief

Hello,
I'm having trouble uninstalling the firewall/antivirus program Zone Alarm from my computer. I downloaded the trial version on a whim and the trial has since ended. When I try to uninstall the program using the add/remove programs function in control panel, I receive a message informing me that the program can't be removed until all programs associated with "true vector" are disabled. I've read up on a few random how-to guides on manual installation, but they all involve registry editing I wasn't confident in. You guys have proven trustworthy -- think I could get a little help uninstalling this mess?
I'm running on Windows XP and using Zone Alarm version 7.0.462.000. The start-up messages and my growing suspicion that ZA is slowing down my wireless network have emboldened me in this endeavor. I'm all ears, guys.

Thanks in advance,
Stef

EDIT: I should also note that, since my trial version has expired, I haven't been able to access the preference to stop ZA from loading at startup.
