    ZoneAlarm install problems with Google

    Hi All,
    I've been trying to install the ZoneAlarm freebie ver. 6.0.667 on my home machine (I'm using the WinXP sp2 firewall now and I'm also plugged into a LinkSys WRT54G router), but I keep getting the attached error message.
    So I shut Google Desktop Search (GDTS) down. made sure it was not running on my wife's user account (I've tried logging her off also), made sure I didn't see a running process through Task Manager, ensured no browser was open, tried to install again and sonovgun, same error message. When I clicked OK another error popped up: "Validation failed for C:Windowssystemvsdata.dll".
    So I uninstalled GDTS (I saved the indexes), tried a ZA install again and got the second error message ("Validation failed for C:Windowssystemvsdata.dll") without the first message (the attachment) appearing.
    I have also re-downloaded ZA and done the above steps with no change.
    So......any suggestions? I was certain that GDTS was not running during the install...what could have ZA been "seeing" since it didn't detect it after uninstalling? The only thing I've been able to find on a search is that ZA will block GDTS and you need to train it, nothing about GDTS blocking ZA.

    Thanks.

    I am curious as to whether the Google Desktop Search was set to run at startup. The ZA installer may be seeing that. A couple of suggestions -- you might also want to turn off your antivirus and try installing ZA in Safe Mode, if possible.
