    Through the Check For Updates feature in ZAP 3.0x, you can obtain a download to ZAP 3.1.
    I am installing this new version now on a test pc, and will report back.

    Sir Blaze,

    a) building an uninstaller is ZoneLabs territory only;

    b) you have expressed your opinion on this issue on many occasions on this board; I'm sure it did not go unnoticed. No need to go into an endless loop here;

    c) In case you feel ZA is "total rubbish", ditch the program and install another one you're more comfortable with. No more ranting please; the choice of what software firewall you want to use is enterily yours.

    regards.

    paul

    i think your confused about my motivations only thing i hate is the uninstalling part and i know for a fact not just all newbys hate that

    but a few of you pros experts hated that to

    what was rubbish was trying to find the update lol i got lost there and by the way the update on za pro was saying that there was no new update but there was at the main za site
    thats what i was mainly wineing about

    as for a za clean uninstaller i do think its a good ideal

    many people here as well as other places have made add ons to there fire wall

    for black ice and zone alarm to make it better

    thrash toss crunch dang where is it?

    hold on hey is this thing still typing as i speak lol

    thrash thrash i had some cool end argument point of view thinghy like an espiring jfk closeing statement lol

    i guess im have to wing it uhmmmmmmm

    Sir Blaze,

    You summed up a) vulnerability tests b) addons. These are quite different from building an uninstaller for a specific software. Building such an uninstaller is a ZoneLabs issue only.

    My main message is: you've made your point in regard to this issue many times. I'm sure you're dissappointed ZL didn't solve the uninstall problem - contact ZoneLabs and express your dissappointment. No need to post one and the same message over and over again on this board.

    regards.

    paul

    My apologies for the late response:

    ZAP 3.1 is running fine on the PC (and the installer actually allowed me to upgrade this time, instead of forcing me to manually uninstall the old version before the installer would run).

    Loading time does seem to be reduced - plus several long standing bugs with the ad blocking seem to be resolved.

    JavaCool,
    would you say this is ZoneLabs best effort yet ?
    I really liked ZA Pro, but it seemed a little unstable at times !!

    It is probably their best version yet, yes.

    It is very stable (haven't been able to crash the new version yet) and loads MUCH faster than previous ZA Pro 3.x versions.

    Also, the uninstall now has the option to revert all changes ZoneAlarm Pro made to your system to the original condition (i.e. the installation procedure is greatly improved).

    I've been running the latest version for twenty-four hours now, and it seems really smooth and light. I haven't seen a single repeated permission request.

    will it dosent like me it works great on the net but i still get a few problems but not as nearly as much as befor.

    i couldnt upgrade i had to attept to do a clean reinstall

    some typ of conflicts with boclean windows me and zap screen freezes boclean not responding cant ctrl alt delet restart must do manuely

    also when i select starrt on start up or auto update it starts aol 7.0 as i start my desk top

    i know what the problem is i need to wipe it completly out of my system and reinstall.

    i cant find the Ereg file to delet to completly clean it out like i did last time

    is there even one in this new zap im drawing a blank here.

    on a good note it reconized my licince as not haveing to be renewed and that i had 2hundred an some days left

    i like that
    the aol on start up i just uncheck the zap on start up and auto update and it works fine now

    but when i click zap manuely it starts aol imidiatly and dials up for me which is cool saves me the the step of cliking on aol icon to get to the net i actualy prefer it this way im lazy lol

    i also notice im catching mor legitement attempts aka hackers with isp out of country with out the aol ip adress letting me know its most likely a hacker

    service is better the fire wall is better
    still need a uninstall utlity it would be nice

    all an all good fire wall

    I don't know if I'm allowed to post that link. :rolleyes:

    But if you haven't gotten a notification via the check for update feature, I would assume if you check today or tomorrow, you should receive one (they may be rolling it out a group at a time, like they did with ZA Free 3.0).

    Just keep checking. :)

    I've been using ZA Pro 3.1 for a few days now. It does seem more stable than it predecessors ! If any problems do develop, I will inform the forum !!
    I did notice one thing, but I can't remember if it was part of the older ZA's Pros as well.....
    after the initial install, during setup, ZA pro 3.1 tells you that it's OK for these "certain apps" to access the internet and allows them by default. These apps were ...Generic Host Processor for Win32 Services, IE6, and Services and Controller App. It states that these services have to able to access the internet to run. If I disallow Gen Host Processor using ZA pro 3.1, I'm cutoff from the net.
    If I disallow Gen Host Processor while using Sygate PFW, I can still connect to the net !!
    I love Firewalls !! LOL !!

    regards,
    bill :)

    I generally don't run the Configuration Wizard in ZA, as I prefer to manually configure program access rites. (Which I've done more than a dozen times now, as I've rebuilt the true vector database for testing or changed versions.) On my XP system, I don't have to allow Generic Host Process or 'Service' to access out or have server rites, and everything still works. Maybe you just need to tweak a bit. If I can be of any help, let me know. :)

    OK,
    Cant connect with "services and controller app" disabled
    Can connect with "gen host for win32 services" disabled.,
    But, with "gen host for win32 services" disabled, if I'm offline for awhile (lock all internet activity), i have to do a reboot to connect again !
    I don't have these issues with Sygate !!

    On my PC (OS: Windows ME) ZAP 3.1 causes a Dial-Up Networking Dialog box to appear when ZAP is first started. This is annoying and didn't happen in ZAP 3.0. I have selected "Check for product updates" manually in the Preferences Tab of the Overview panel, so I don't know why ZAP is so anxious for me to connect to the internet. Anyone else notice this?
