Phantom Mcafee Firewall after Updates to Vista 32 Bit Home Premium

Hi,

I just installed a whole slew of updates for Vista 32 Bit Home Premium. Now 
I cannot access internet with my Zone Alarm suite enabled because windows 
claims Mcafee Firewall is also running. I have no currently installed McAfee 
components or products. I uninstalled the free versions that came preloaded 
on the laptop 2 years ago. How can I disable McAfee firewal when I do not 
even have it?

Thanks.

Hey thank you very much...this fixed the McAfee problem...

As a side note for anyone else using Zone Alarm, you need to make sure you 
have 100% of avialable Windows updates, including Service Pack 1 and 2 (which 
may not register as needed/available updates in Window's Update unless you 
have all other updates installed...). If you do not have these and you 
upgrade anything else, like ME8 for instance, ZA will sever your internet 
access and isolate you....Then you'll need to uninstall ZA, do 100% of 
available Windows upgrades, download latest ZA and reinstall...

Thanks again,

Paul

ME8 ? Is that the 8th edition of Windows ME ?

When Internet Explorer has been upgraded to a higher version then you 
need to go back into ZA's allowed programs/executable list, delete the 
previous version of IE (iexplore.exe), and add the upgraded iexplore.exe 
to the allowed list.

Then again, there's absolutely *no* need to even install ZA in the first 
place as the native Vista firewall is fully capable of protecting the 
system when used in conjunction with a hardware firewall in the router.

MowGreen,

While this may be true, ZA has kept me virus free with virtually no issues 
for about 10 years now, so I tend to go with what works...This was literally 
the first issue I've had and it can fairly be blamed on the MS Window's 
strange habit of only recognizing certain updates....Most people might 
believe that once they have executed an update search and installed all 
updates returned they are done, in this case it took 5 update 
scans/installs/reboots to get to SP1 even being offered....

I realize the average skill level in here is probably skewed to the norhtern 
end of the spectrum, so us *novices* just have to limp aong on what we know...

Thanks again,

Paul F.

Statistics Update: Fullscan vs. Sample
Excluding time considerations for statistics update, is there a reason why I would want to choose fullscan over sample feature? In which situations would fullscan be preferable? Thanks in advance When you're not getting acceptable query response times from a properly indexed table.

Update picture changes wrap points, Pub 2002 & 03
I have struggled with this problem for six months. Whenever I update a graphic in Pub 2002 or 03beta2, any custom wrap points are erased. It is interesting to note the transparency setting used via the "Magic Wand" will be the same, and the default wrap settings are the same. E.g. White is still transparent, and Tight is still Tight, but the one wrap point I moved to generate white space between the girl's hair and the text defaults to Tight. This behavior was not evident in Pub 2000, which I have used for two years. Someone suggested reclicking Text Wrapping and reselecting Tig...
