I am having major problems with upgrading Zonealarm and am about to move to alternate firewall - any suggestions for a suitable alternative would ne much appreciated.
I upgraded from Zonealarm 2.6.362.0 to 6.1.737.0 and got the error message System Error: Please reboot
I removed and re-installed ZA about five times before Googling for an answer and then visiting Zonealarms site when none of the suggestions worked. After a lot of searching on the ZA site I finally found reference to the above error message along with the suggestion that I do a clean install by following the instructions at website address: If you have a Cisco VPN client installed, you must first uninstall the VPN client, then follow the instructions below
This page appears to be a copy of a now deleted ZA page. Well, I followed the instructions to the letter and still no joy (did this 6 times!). The fact that ZA have deleted the page probably means it wasn't a fix anyway. Still, I can't find anything else regarding how to fix this problem at the ZA site - but plenty of people asking for a solution!
So, as a last ditch attempt at getting an answer, can anyone solve this for me. And failing that, what is a good firewall to switch to. And, what am I risking by not having a firewall - it has been disabled for 2 weeks now.
