    Welcome to the Lounge!

    Error 1636 appears to be associated with a problem with the downloaded file. According to this thread at ZoneLabs, they are aware of it and working on a resolution. I would give it another go.

    Welcome from me too! We hope you enjoy visiting.

    If you can't make a go of ZA, there are many other free ones. A search of this forum will turn up some. I happen to use Free Software Download from Comodo, but there are others.

    Just be sure that you select to run ONLY the firewall if you already have an antivirus program.
