    Can't delete Zone Alarm Pro So I can run PC-cillian

    PC-cillin™ Internet Security 14.55 for Windows Vista™ version which works
    with my
    Beta 2.0 Build 5384
    I just can't zone alarm to open or to delete it via: uninstall in Start/All
    Programs/ Zone Alarms.
    I also try the add remove section in control panel and that doesn't work.
    I KEEP GETTING A TRUE VECTOR FILE IS IN USE BY ANOTHER PROGRAM.
    I TRIED TO REBOOT IN SAFETY AND NO GO.

    I HAVE O.C.D. & ANXIETY ATTACKS, DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH LONGER I CAN TAKE
    BEFORE I GO HIT MY MEDS.

    HAPPY JULY 4 & GOD BLESS OUR MILITARY & VETS

    I don't know the answer to your quersion because I never attempted to
    install either. But basically, you never want to run any ustility/security
    programs unless they were designed for Vista. So your best bet would be to
    just not use those at all. Obviously it's too late for that on the Zone
    Alarm front. If worse comes to worse, you may have to reinstall everything.
    The Windows Firewall installs and goes up automatically, so you don't need
    to bother with Zone Alarm. (Yes, I know about all the marketing hype about
    this firewall being better than that firewall and such. But you'll be fine
    with Windows Firewal).

    I think I have managed to delete Zone Alarm. But it may be because of
    something I already did trying to get rid of it. Can someone with the same
    problem try this and see if it works for them

    Start, Programs, Zone Alarm, RIGHT CLICK on Zone Alarm Uninstall and click
    on Run as Administrator. It then go's straight through and deletes Zone
    Alarm.
