Right click it and click open or maximize to see if it is smart defender

Clcik the taskbar icon to see if Zone Alarm wants you to allow or deny anything

Download the trial, click install, when it says upgrade or clean install, choose clean install

nvm. a windows generic process ended it for the windows update operating system while a norton scan was half way done. and it was a confirmation of the za pro trial fw. this should be solved in 11 days b/c it expires thanks though. i guess ill just have to deal with it for that period of time.

Have you tried uninstalling it with add / remove

It will get worse when the trial ends as it wil keep prompting you to buy it

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter, click start up and remove any ZA ticks, click apply and reboot
