cranky

bloody windas

Some Windows update or other has decided I don't want to run Zone Alarm firewall and want the XP firewall instead. Zone Alarm autostart was disabled, so I thought "Oh! I'll just uninstall/reinstall ZA and it'll be fine.' NO! Uninstall went fine, but now the installer can't find the truevector service installed components. I can't install Zone Alarm and I am now stuck with an almost non-configurable firewall that doesn't tell me ANYTHING apart from the fact that it's working. I can't trust a firewall like that.
